A new survey finds that universities with the most international students are likely to graduate their students with the lowest levels of job security and income growth.
The results are based on a new study published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics that surveyed 1,723 US employers.
The survey found that universities that have the highest number of international students were in the top five with an average of 3.1 percent of the total workforce.
The top universities with a higher percentage of international graduates were Northwestern University, Yale University, the University of California-Berkeley, and the University in California-Los Angeles.
The University of Illinois-Chicago had the highest percentage of its workforce made up of international workers at 4.4 percent, followed by the University at Buffalo at 3.2 percent and the Boston University at 3 percent.
The Bureau of Labour Statistics also found that a higher proportion of students are choosing to graduate from higher education in the fall, compared to the spring and summer.
Students who graduate in the spring tend to graduate in three to four years.
The study, titled “International students and the employment landscape,” analyzed a survey of more than 15,000 employers from January through April 2017.
The survey covered more than 3,700 businesses with more than 2.7 million employees.
The report, which looked at job openings for the fall of 2018 and the spring of 2019, found that the unemployment rate for international workers was 5.3 percent in the U.S. in 2019, a decrease from 5.6 percent in 2019 and 5.9 percent in 2020.
However, it was slightly higher in the summer months of 2019 when unemployment rates ranged from 4.9 to 6.6.
In the spring, unemployment rates averaged 4.3 for international students.
The report said this trend is due to a surge in students entering the workforce.
The national unemployment rate has increased slightly from 4 percent in April 2018 to 5.1% in the current survey.
It remains at 5.4% in 2021.
