Post-Secondary Employment Outcomes (PSEO) is a new set of statistics on the earnings and employment outcomes of graduates of select post-secondary institutions, including graduates from the state of Ohio, in the United States and is constructed using Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics (LEHD) data. Earnings Outcomes reports earnings by institution, degree field, degree level and graduation cohort for 1, 5 and 10 years after graduation. Employment Flows tabulations provide the destination industry and geography of employment for graduates of an institution by degree level, degree field, and graduation cohort, for one, five, and 10 years after graduation.

PSEO data can be accessed via the PSEO Explorer visualization tool. This interactive tool allows for comparisons of employment outcomes through dynamic grouped bar charts and employment flows through Sankey diagrams.
