1. Employment Rates: 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 2008 graduates of undergraduate degree programs. Graduates were asked about their employment situation six months and two years after graduation.

Notes:
1. Graduation Rates: MTCU has calculated graduation rates using a single entering cohort of students and determining whether or not they had graduated within seven years. An entering cohort consists of all new full-time, year one undergraduate students in the Fall 2002 session, and were seeking either a bachelors or first professional degree. This cohort is then matched against the records of students who received a degree (in any program) from the same institution during the following seven years period (2002 to 2009).
2. Saint Paul University is included.
