BIS Performance Indicators: The gap between the proportion of young graduates from professional backgrounds who go on to a "graduate job" 6 months after graduating and young graduates from non-professional backgrounds

This indicator provides one way of looking at the issue of how to ensure a more socially mobile society: are graduates from less advantaged backgrounds as able to enter 'graduate jobs' as their peers from more advantaged backgrounds? 

It focuses on young graduates in full-time employment six months after graduating. It reveals that an estimated 71% of those who came from the most advantaged backgrounds before higher education were in the most advantaged occupation groups six months after graduating in 2011/12. In comparison, 67% of those from less advantaged backgrounds were in the most advantaged occupation groups.
