(a) To capture all graduates in a particular year, mid year graduates are surveyed at October 31 of that year, and end of year graduates are surveyed at April 30 the following year. For example, 2012 earnings data is based on students who completed studies in mid 2011, and those who completed studies at the end of 2011.
(b) Salary data may include additional payments such as overtime and bonuses. Figures therefore do not necessarily reflect award rates. An example is the case of medical graduates, whose base salary is increased markedly by overtime payments.
(c) In 2011–12 dollars, adjusted using changes in the Consumer Price Index.
