|NCES 2018401||Debt After College: Employment, Enrollment, and Student-Reported Stress and Outcomes
These Web Tables present information obtained from the 2008/12 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12) and provide estimates of financial, employment, and enrollment outcomes in the 4 years following graduation for graduates with various levels of student loan debt. The outcomes and decisions of 2007–08 bachelor’s degree recipients are of particular interest because this cohort completed college during the most recent economic recession, which can have implications for outcomes related to employment and additional education (Grusky, Western, and Wimer 2011). B&B:08/12 is a nationally representative, longitudinal sample survey of students who completed the requirements for a bachelor’s degree during the 2007–08 academic year. The data for this report are drawn from the second follow-up, which was conducted in 2012–13. Results are presented by the amount students borrowed, ratio of loan payment to monthly salary, occupation, postbaccalaureate enrollment characteristics, undergraduate institution control, bachelor’s degree major, and demographic characteristics.
|NCES 2018139||High School Longitudinal Study of 2009 (HSLS:09) Second Follow-Up:
A First Look at Fall 2009 Ninth-Graders in 2016

The tables first present students’ participation in 37 different fields by sex, race/ethnicity, age, first postsecondary institution sector, bachelor’s degree institution sector, and major. The tables then show the courses most commonly taken by bachelor’s degree recipients at large, bachelor’s degree recipients who began in 2-year colleges, and bachelor’s degree recipients who pursue specific majors. The final two tables report the five STEM courses in which non-STEM majors most frequently earned credits, and the five non-STEM courses in which STEM majors most frequently earned credits.
|NCES 2012256||Web Tables—Occupational and Academic Majors in Postsecondary Education: 6-Year Education and Employment Outcomes, 2001 and 2009.
