An Underemployment chart

This is interesting.

Most of the statistics I see about such things measure which majors or degrees earn the most on average.

But the Washington Post reports a survey from PayScale that asks a slightly different question.

Mathematics is 10th on the "least underemployed majors" list.  With a mathematics degree you can do many things!

I am surprised that the very least underemployed is civil and environmental engineering.  But not too surprised.  I have a brother-in-law who does civil structural engineering who gets job offers all the time.
