Please note that the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Employment Reports only include data from the 1Y, MMM and 2Y programs. This differs from previous years’ employment reports, which included data from the 1Y, MMM, 2Y, JDMBA, MDMBA, E&W OCR and Sponsored populations. As a result, benchmarking these more recent reports against previous reports is not advised.
