Graduate Debt Analysis

The following results have been gathered from the survey that was taken on 2004 for the Barclays Annual Graduate Survey, where the graduates were asking various questions that associated with their financial and employment status. After the survey was completed the data was collected and compared to one another. During the comparison there were chart and diagrams also created to make the comparison easier.
Pie chart 1 shows the current employment situation of the graduates. From the pie chart it clearly shows that there are more than a third of the total graduates that are currently in employment (67.21%). It also shows that there is a fair noticeable amount of graduates that are currently seeking employment (14.70%).
Finally there are 18.09% of graduates that are in short term employment.

Pie Chart 1

This pie chart shows the main sections that the graduates were put into. Although the above chart only shows the current employment situation it doesn’t show any further information such as the gender or the age. Below shows the current employment situation split up into gender and the amount of graduates in each section.
After they were analysed they then were then broken down to male and female, this makes it easier to see when gender was in which position. Gender * Current employment situation Cross tabulation | Gender | Current employment situation | Total | | In permanent employment | In short term employment | Seeking employment | | | Male | 445 | 106 | 130 | 681 | | Female | 785 | 225 | 139 | 1149 | Total | Table 1
Table 1
1230 | 331 | 269 | 1830 |

The table above shows the number of graduates broken down to their status and their gender. It shows that more than 50% of males are in permanent employment and the same for the females. Also the total graduates in permanent employment are twice as more than both short term and seeking employment for males and females added together.
In short term employments, females are twice more likely to being short term employment than males. Whereas in seeking employment there are nearly equal.
By looking at the graph it shows that there were nearly double females than males that participated in the survey but this data does not include the missing values (graduates that did not participate) Age when graduated * Current employment situation | Age when graduated | Current employment situation | Total | | In permanent employment | In short term employment | Seeking employment | | | 18-21 | 428 | 146 | 89 | 663 | | 22-25 | 585 | 160 | 130 | 875 | | 26-30 | 60 | 11 | 22 | 93 | | 31-40 | 87 | 9 | 17 | 113 | | 41 and over | 70 | 5 | 11 | 86 | Total | 1230 | 331 | 269 | 1830 |

The table above shows…
