The experience of young adults who have advanced through RI’s public education system and entered the workforce offers insight into the state’s school-to-career pipeline. A previous data story looked at early college outcomes for a group of RI public school students.

Now, with nearly a decade of data, we examine how the educational experience of these students is shaping the start of their careers. This story looks at factors such as educational attainment and field of study to see how they relate to later employment in RI.

The analysis was undertaken as part of Rhode Island's Workforce Data Quality Initiative, which is funded by the US Dept. of Labor and aimed at pinpointing the effectiveness of education and training programs.
