We continued to improve our survey administration rate , but we also used Linkedin for 2017 graduates who did not respond to their first survey ( we found 9 ) and for 2016 or earlier graduates who responded last year but not this year ( we confirmed the employment status of all 38 ). As can be seen in the table below , respondents generally resemble the overall population with a few exceptions : younger graduates seem more likely to respond , as are students who attended a Best Fit College and earned better grades in high school .
