Abstract: The National Survey of Recent College Graduates (NSRCG) provides information about individuals who recently obtained bachelor's or master's degrees in a science, engineering or health field. This group is of special interest to many decision makers, because it represents individuals who have recently made the transition from school to the workplace. It also provides information about individuals attending graduate school. The results of this survey are vital for educational planners within the federal government and in academia. The results are also used by employers in all sectors (education, industry, and government) to understand and predict trends in employment opportunities and salaries in S&E fields for recent graduates and to evaluate the effectiveness of equal opportunity efforts. Information about labor force particpation, edcation experiences, and demographics is included in this surey. This survey is also a component of the Scientists and Engineers Statistical Data System (SESTAT), which provides data on the total number and characteristics of individuals with training or employment in science and engineering (S&E) in the United States. For more information about NSRCG, please visit SESTAT.
