Workforce earnings data illustrate one of many benefits of earning a college credential or degree. This page
highlights individual first-year earnings and individual earnings over a decade by both degree level and degree
field. These data are from the Texas Unemployment Insurance Wage Record File and include only students who
graduated from Texas institutions of higher education and were subsequently employed in Texas. The salaries are
for the degrees awarded during the year shown, with no subsequent degrees earned (i.e., students who earn a
higher degree are removed from the cohort). Graduates are not necessarily employed in their degree fields.
