Why are some table numbers missing from this contents list?

Some previously published tables have not been updated this year but instead replaced with new tables. Most of these tables contained data using previous classifications such as the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) 2010 framework.

We want to allow our users to have the ability to continue accessing data under these older frameworks whilst also providing access to updated data based on more recent classifications such as the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) 2020 framework.

Tables that have not been updated this year can be seen in the Graduate Outcomes Archive section at the end of the contents of releases.
