 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study


The Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B) is based on a sample of students who received baccalaureate degrees.12 Two B&B surveys have been conducted thus far, one a study that tracks the experiences of a cohort of college graduates who received baccalaureate degrees during the 1992–93 academic year (B&B:93/97) and a second that tracks those who received baccalaureate degrees during the 1999–2000 academic year (B&B:2000/01). The data derived from this survey provide critical information about college graduates’ postsecondary education outcomes, including graduate and professional program access, labor market experience, and rates of return on investment in education. Eligible students for the B&B samples were identified from participants in the two corresponding National Postsecondary Student Aid Studies (NPSAS:93 and NPSAS:2000).
