BIS Consultation ? do you use the Graduate Labour Market Statistics (GLMS)?

19 November 2015

Graduate Labour Market Statistics (GLMS) is a quarterly publication, produced by BIS uses the Labour Force Survey to report on the labour market conditions for English domiciled graduates and postgraduates relative to non-graduates.

The first release was published on the 9th December 2014 was the first publication in the series with statistics for July to September (Q3) 2014. Since then, there have been three further quarterly publications, which cover the period from Q4 2014 to Q2 2015.

As these are classed as experimental statistics, the one year point is viewed as a logical time to assess their continuing value and whether they are meeting users’ needs.

The consultation will run from 17 November 2015 with responses required by 1 December 2015 and seeks to gather information on:

  1. Who uses the GLMS, for what purpose and how BIS can make the GLMS more useful.
  2. Users’ views on the future frequency and content of the GLMS, including the proposal to release the statistics on an annual rather than quarterly basis.

Responses to the consultation will be summarised in the consultation response which will be used to determine the format and frequency of the next Graduate Labour Market Statistics release.
