Georgia Higher Learning and Earnings

The Georgia Higher Learning and Earnings (GHLE) project provides information on earnings information for Georgia technical college and college/university graduates who work in Georgia after earning their degrees.  The GHLE dashboard, available at this link, is an interactive site that allows users to explore earnings patterns of graduates for the first and fifth years after graduation.  Users can view information by program of study/major, degree type, and Georgia public technical college or college/university.  The dashboard also provides earnings information for the most popular and highest earning degrees.

Data for the report and dashboard are provided by Georgia’s Academic and Workforce Analysis and Research Data System (GA•AWARDS). GA•AWARDS is the state’s Pre-K through workforce (P-20W) longitudinal data system.  Student degree and certificate data are provided to GA•AWARDS by the University System of Georgia (USG), Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), Georgia Independent College Association (GICA), and the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC). The Georgia Department of Labor (GaDOL) provides wage data to GA•AWARDS, and the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC) provides financial aid data.
