AbstractThis is the fourth wave of the Australian Longitudinal Survey (ALS) list sample which has run each year since 1984. The 1987 wave surveyed a sample of 1518 people who were first interviewed in 1984 (see SSDA Study No. 377, Australian Longitudinal Survey 1984: Wave 1, Level 1) and again in 1985 and 1986 (see SSDA Studies No. 410 and No. 420). The 1987 sample comprised people aged 15-24 years (in 1984) and was drawn from Commonwealth Employment Service registers. 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.
