EPRI's uOttawa Tax-Linkage Project uses income tax data to track the earnings of uOttawa graduates from 1998 to 2011. What emerges is a unique and powerful portrait of their labour market outcomes. Major findings include:
  • Average first year earnings started around $40,000 and rose steadily over time;
  • Graduates from different faculties had substantially different starting earnings levels and different rates of increases over time;
  • Some earnings patterns were stable across cohorts, others were more volatile;
  • Earnings patterns differed for men and women.
