Cengage Studies the Economic and Social Environments of Graduates

Cengage released the first annual Cengage Student Opportunity Index, a study of the opportunity environment for graduates across 17 indicators, based on a survey of 2,500 recent and upcoming college graduates as well as existing public data. Scores were calculated on a national and a regional level, and the categories of opportunity are employment, economic, social, and personal well-being.

The key findings are separated by category:

  • The employment category shows that 93% of upcoming graduates think they’ll get a job in their educational field within 6 months, but only 60% do.
  • The economic category shows that 51% of graduates have student loan debt (the average amount is nearly $23,000), and 65% of them will have to move from their current area in order to afford housing.
  • The social category shows that 61% of respondents think they’ll be better off than their parents, but 48% believe the country is headed in the wrong direction.
  • The personal well-being category shows that 62% of respondents have had problems with paying for a healthcare expense.

For more information and more key findings, read the press release.
