The 2018 GOS was primarily conducted as a national online survey among 102 higher education institutions including all 41 Table A and B universities and 61 Non-University Higher Education Institutions (NUHEIs). A total of 120,564 valid survey responses were collected across all study levels, representing a response rate of 43.0 per cent which is a slight decrease from 45.0 per cent in 2017 but still constitutes an increase from the 39.7 per cent achieved in 2016. Graduate employment outcomes are reported consistent with the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) standard model of labour force statistics. See Appendix 2 for details.
