This chapter reports on the key findings of the graduate tracer study under three broad headings. The first briefly profiles the 3 503 respondents in terms of their biographies, highlighting such variables as province, population group, gender, age and parental/ guardian education levels. The second extends this profile to a consideration of respondents' college education and employment status, focusing in the first part on the qualifications of graduates, including the fields in which they achieved their college certificates, and in the second juxtaposing these with their current employment situations and their employment experience between 1999- and late 2001. The third adds a new dimension to the analysis. It considers the quasi-behavioral evidence regarding respondents' experience of their college education: language of learning, the provision of career guidance, work experience during college studies, and first employment experiences.
