Abstract

This paper examines factors associated with employment status among Graduates in South Africa using the March 2007 labour force survey data from Statistics South Africa. Factors with important implications on employment status rather than speculated gender and race are identified. Using binary logistic model, the paper reveals that government programmes in job creation and reduction of unemployment among graduates are not significant. The findings provide a proper diagnostic solution in the area of policy formulation as to what needs to be done to alleviate graduate unemployment problems in South Africa.
