The report reveals that there was a sizable decline between the winter-spring of 2007 and 2012 in the proportion of all young college graduates who worked in a college labor market job; a decline from 54.1 percent to 43.9 percent among 20- to 24-year-olds and 63.9 percent to 56.7 percent among 25- to 29-year-olds. A sizeable part of these declines occurred in the jobs recovery period over the last two years.
