Explanation: Placement rate data are reported the year after graduation. The institute believes that a 95 percent placement rate represents an appropriate ongoing target, but economic conditions have deteriorated to a point that it is affecting students' ability to find permanent placement. The students employed rate is calculated as the percentage of graduates who are employed among those who want to be employed. In 2006, the targets for the two new categories (Students in Advanced Education or Training, and Not Engaged in Either Activity) are to establish the baselines.
