The data used in PayScale's College Salary Report is from the company’s ongoing, online compensation survey, which collects user-provided data about jobs, compensation, employer, demographics and educational background. The sample considered for the 2015-2016 College Salary report was 1.4 million college graduates.

Not every college and university in the U.S. is included in the study. According to PayScale, there are approximately 3,163 bachelor's degree-granting schools in the U.S, and this year’s College Salary Report includes 1,063 of them.

PayScale defines early-career employees as those with five years of experience or less in their career or field, and mid-career employees as those with at least 10 years of experience.
