NCES 2018130 Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) Program: American Community Survey Comparable Wage Index for Teachers (ACS-CWIFT)
The Comparable Wage Index (CWI) is an index that was initially created by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to facilitate comparison of educational expenditures across locales (principally school districts, or local educational agencies—LEAs) or states (state educational agencies— SEAs). The CWI is a measure of the systematic, regional variations in the wages and salaries of college graduates who are not PK-12 educators as determined by reported occupational category. It can be used by researchers to adjust district-level finance data at different levels in order to make better comparisons across geographic areas. This documentation describes the creation of a CWI for teachers based primarily on the American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS, an ongoing survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, has replaced the decennial census as the primary source of detailed demographic information about the U.S. population. It provides information about the earnings, age, occupation, industry, and other demographic characteristics for millions of U.S. workers. The ACS-CWIFT measures wage and salary differences for college graduates, using an analysis that is modeled after the baseline analysis used to construct the original CWI released by NCES in 2006.

NCES 2018401 Debt After College: Employment, Enrollment, and Student-Reported Stress and Outcomes
These Web Tables present information obtained from the 2008/12 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/12) and provide estimates of financial, employment, and enrollment outcomes in the 4 years following graduation for graduates with various levels of student loan debt. The outcomes and decisions of 2007–08 bachelor’s degree recipients are of particular interest because this cohort completed college during the most recent economic recession, which can have implications for outcomes related to employment and additional education (Grusky, Western, and Wimer 2011). B&B:08/12 is a nationally representative, longitudinal sample survey of students who completed the requirements for a bachelor’s degree during the 2007–08 academic year. The data for this report are drawn from the second follow-up, which was conducted in 2012–13. Results are presented by the amount students borrowed, ratio of loan payment to monthly salary, occupation, postbaccalaureate enrollment characteristics, undergraduate institution control, bachelor’s degree major, and demographic characteristics.
