Bratti, Massimiliano, McKnight, Abigail, Naylor, Robin and Smith, Jeremy (2004) Higher education outcomes, graduate employment and university performance indicators. Journal of the Royal Statistical Society: series A (statistics in society), 167 (3). pp. 475-496. ISSN 0964-1998
Official employment-related performance indicators in UK higher education are based on the population of students responding to the ‘First destination supplement’ (FDS). This generates potentially biased performance indicators as this population of students is not necessarily representative of the full population of leavers from each institution. University leavers who do not obtain qualifications and those who do not respond to the FDS are not included within the official analysis. We compare an employment-related performance indicator based on those students who responded to the FDS with alternative approaches which address the potential non-random nature of this subgroup of university leavers.
