  • Employment Rates: The employment rate is defined as the number of employed persons expressed as a percentage of the labour force where the labour force is those persons who were employed, or unemployed but looking for work. To determine employment rates of recent graduates, Ontario universities conducted a survey of all 2011 graduates of undergraduate degree programs. Graduates were asked questions regarding their employment situation six months and two years after graduation.
  • The Overall Average figure was not reported by all universities for all years.
  • If the number of students in a cell is less than 5, the percentage figure was not included. The employment rate was not included because the number of respondents was less than or equal to 5.

  • Graduation Rates: The graduation rates are calculated using a single entering cohort of students and determining whether or not they graduated within seven years. The methodology employed involves the selection of all new full-time, Year One undergraduate students on the official Fall 2004 enrolment file, who have a valid (and unique) student ID number, and were seeking either a bachelors or first professional degree. The subset was then matched against the records for students who received a degree (in any program) from the same institution during the most current seven year period (2004 to 2011).
  • The Overall Average figure was not reported by all universities for all years.
