Post Secondary Employment Outcomes Explorer

The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education has partnered with the United States Census Bureau to offer the Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) Explorer Tool which offers earnings and geographical employment outcomes for South Carolina public college and university graduates by degree level, degree major, and post-secondary institution.

These statistics are generated by matching university transcript data with a national database of jobs, using state-of-the-art confidentiality protection mechanisms to protect the underlying data. Institution, program and other variables can be changed through the control panel on the left of the tool.

PSEO data are experimental tabulations developed by researchers at the Census Bureau, in cooperation with higher education institutions and institutional systems across the nation. They are available for post-secondary institutions whose transcript data have been made available to the Census Bureau through a data-sharing agreement.
