 21. Classification of current main job by industry sector.
        The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) is a hierarchical system for classifying places of employment by
        type of economic activity. The NAICS Canada system contains 20 Sectors, 99 Sub-sectors, 321 Industry Groups, 734
        Industries and 921 National Industries. This table summarizes the place of employment of graduates into one of 20 Industry
        Sectors.

 22. Classification of current main job by NOC Skill Type.
        The National Occupational Classification (NOC) system was developed by Human Resources Development Canada. The
        NOC coding system classifies and describes occupations in the Canadian labour market. The NOC system classifies
        approximately 25,000 job titles into three tiers: 26 Major Groups, 139 Minor Groups, and 522 Unit Groups. One of the ways
        in which these groups are related is by Skill Type. The skill type is based on the type of work performed. It also reflects the
        field of training or experience that is normally required for entry into the occupation (area of study and industry of
        employment). There are ten different skill types (based on the first digit of the NOC code). The jobs held by graduates are
        categorized by NOC skill type in this table.

 23. Classification of current main job by NOC Skill Level.
        Refer to note 7.07 for a brief description of the NOC system. One way in which the NOC groups are related is by Skill Level.
        The skill level is primarily based on the nature of education and training required to work in an occupation, plus the
        experience required for entry, complexity and responsibilities. There are four different skill levels (indicated by the second
        digit of the NOC code). The jobs held by graduates are categorized by NOC skill level in this table. The four skill levels are:

           A. University degree at the bachelor, masters or post-graduate level (2nd digit of NOC code = 1).
           B. College level education including trade apprenticeships (2nd digit of NOC code = 2 or 3).
           C. Secondary school education (up to four years) plus a period of job-specific training (2nd digit of NOC code = 4 or 5).
           D. No formal education required - up to 2 years of secondary school educ. and short work demonstration (2nd digit of NOC
          code = 6).

 25. Did you change jobs from 1995 to 1998?
        This question was only asked of those who were employed in both the Fall of 1995 and the Fall of 1998.

 26. How has your income changed from 1995 to 1998?
       This question was only asked of those who were employed in both the Fall of 1995 and the Fall of 1998, but not in the same
       job.

 27. How has your job satisfaction changed from 1995 to 1998?
       This question was only asked of those who were employed in both the Fall of 1995 and the Fall of 1998, but not in the same
       job.

 28. How has the application of your university skills/ knowledged changed in your 1998 job vs. 1995 job?
       This question was only asked of those who were employed in both the Fall of 1995 and the Fall of 1998, but not in the same
       job.

 29. Are you employed full-time or part-time?
        Respondents were asked to self-declare the full-time/part-time employment status. A "full-time" job was not defined by the
        interviewer.

 32. What is your annual full-time employment income?
     a) Only includes graduates who were self-declared as full-time employed.
     b) In some cases, graduates are working multiple jobs such that they are full-time employed. In these cases, the employment
        income from all of their jobs are included in the annual full-time earnings.
     c) Salaries recorded below $10,000 are considered invalid since this would place the graduate below the minimum wage.

 33. Median annual full-time employment income.
       Median salaries are rounded to the nearest $100.

 35. Characteristics of current job.
     a) The proportion of graduates looking for a better job, requiring a bachelor’s degree for their job and are in a job related to their
        program are expressed as a percentage of employed graduates.
     b) The proportion of graduates whose skills/knowledge are applied to their job is expressed as a percentage of graduates in a
        program-related job.

 36. Why are you not in a more program-related job?
       This question was only asked of those graduates who are not in a program-related job.

        Mean and median debt are rounded to the nearest $100.

 41. Did you receive government student loans? How much government loan debt did you incur?
        Mean and median government student loan debt are rounded to the nearest $100.

        Mean and median outstanding government student loan debt are rounded to the nearest $100.
