AbstractThis is the second wave of the Australian Longitudinal Survey (ALS) which will run each year from 1984 until at least 1987. The 1985 wave surveyed a sample of 2400 people who were first interviewed in 1984 (see SSDA Study No. 377, Australian Longitudinal Survey, 1984: Wave 1, Level 1). The 1984 sample comprised people aged 15-24 years (in 1984) and was drawn from Commonwealth Employment Service registers. This preliminary release of the 1985 sample contains only data from the 1985 interview schedule. A future release will include summary variables derived from the original 1985 data, as well as comparable information collected for each respondent from the 1984 Wave 1 of the survey. 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.
