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.
Graduate Earning Trends
Shows the one, five and ten year earning trends of graduates by institution and program.
Geographical Employment Flows
Shows the geographical location of graduates by program and institution at one, five, and ten years. This is of particular interest to those who wish to understand which majors tend to stay in or leave the state after graduation.
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.
