This report describes the findings of a nationally representative sample of 544 recent high school graduates from the classes of 2006 through 2011. The purpose of this study is to understand how recent high school graduates who are not attending college full time are faring in the workforce, specifically looking at those individuals who graduated before and during the difficult labor market caused by the Great Recession. The national recession officially began in late 2007 and ended in 2009. However, we classify students graduating from 2006, 2007, and 2008 as “pre-recession” graduates and students graduating in 2009, 2010, and 2011 as “recession” era graduates because the unemployment situation was dire during this entire period, even
though economic growth was positive.
