Abstract: One aspect of the quality of higher education is the quality of the results achieved. Higher education adds value by developing job-related skills and abilities. It is not known to what extent the abilities of graduates meet the requirements of employers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the employability and competence of statistics graduates. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire and analyzed using SPSS version 23. In this study, Kaplan Meier estimation method was used to compare the unemployment time of two or more groups. To assess whether there were real differences between groups, we used the log rank test. Of the 303 statistics graduates, 17.7 were unemployed and 82.3 were employed. Among the employed graduates, 65.8 have fixed workers and the remaining 16.5 of graduates had a temporary worker. The mean duration of unemployed statistics graduate at Bahir Dar University was 12.9 month (95 CI, (9.9, 15.9)). This study revealed that there is a percentage of graduates who are not yet employed and never been employed. Therefore, the department must be a linkage with the different government organization and NGO.This may improve the employability of statistics graduates.
