The Earnings Outcomes of Post-secondary Co-op Graduates: Evidence from Tax-linked Administrative Data

This project examines the earnings outcomes of co-op graduates using data from five Ontario PSE institutions. It is based on a novel dataset that linked 14 Canadian PSE institutions’ administrative data on graduates to their tax records stored at Statistics Canada. These data contain up to eight years of earnings history following graduation, allowing us to study the pattern of earnings profiles for co-op graduates. The data also allow us to produce results broken down by student characteristics, in particular field of study and gender. The study is funded by the Ontario Human Capital Research and Innovation Fund.
