- Employment after completing school
This is the set of search results from the National Center for Education Statistics. They measure many kinds of post-education employment, such as college students 1 year after graduation and employment rate for high school dropouts.
- Background on foreign students and workers
International students who come to the US to study are under a range of strict requirements from the federal government and in order to stay or come back to the US to work, they have to meet another separate set of requirements. This makes comparing employment between native and international students complicated.
- National Science Foundation (NSF) Statistics
As the name suggests, the NSF focuses on gathering data on students in the sciences. Here, they do distinguish between native and international students and include employment rates by field.
