Notes on Graduate Mobility
These data were produced by matching the records of graduates from 2007-08 through 2017-18 and obtaining addresses through AlumniFinder in December of 2018. The data are then matched against Unemployment Insurance Wage records (quarterly earnings reported to the Commonwealth), Unemployment Insurance Benefits records, and college/university enrollment records reported to SCHEV. The data represent our best estimate of how many graduates were living or working in Virginia in 2018.
