AbstractThis is the first wave of the Australian Longitudinal Survey which will run each year from 1984 until at least 1987. This 1984 wave surveyed a sample of 3,000 people aged 15-24, drawn from Commonwealth Employment Service registers. After 1984 this group will be surveyed again and be supplemented by a similarly continuing population survey of 9,000 people of the same age cohort drawn randomly across Collector's Districts matching the CES offices from which the list sample was selected. The survey is aimed principally at examining questions related to long-term unemployment which are difficult to address using available sources of cross-sectional data. Labour market variables include job history, job search behaviour, job training and transition from school/study to work. Background variables and topics related to the main labour market theme include education, occupation, health, and attitudes to women working. Basic demographic variables include age, sex, size of household, country of birth, racial origin, parental education and occupation, spouse's education and occupation, religion, income and whether resident in an urban or rural area.
