College Track: 2020 Social Mobility Report 2020 Social Mobility Report - Page 23

As the table to the right shows, respondents generally resemble the overall population with a few exceptions: (1) recent graduates and female-identified graduates seem slightly more likely to respond, (2) our Asian-American graduates are slightly overrepresented as respondents, and (3) our African-American graduates are slightly underrepresented in the respondent group. It also important to note, that the vast majority of our alumni to date come from our Bay Area centers, and within the respondent sample 80% are still residing in California.

To ensure that our college graduates continue to experience social mobility, we will expand our services and resources to meet the need of a changing workforce and cost of living. In fall 2019, we launched CT Connect, an online portal to connect alumni with each other, to career growth opportunities, and to the greater College Track community.

At the time of the survey, we reached out to 127 graduates (within six months of graduation) and 356 older graduates (more than one year after graduation). We had an additional subset of older graduates who we did not have up-to-date contact information for and could not reach, however their demographic information is still included in the non-respondent breakdowns. In total, 46% of graduates (224) responded to the survey. Although this is still a robust enough sample to glean insights, it is down from last year’s impressive 66% response rate, and 2017’s 53% response rate.
