Study TitleAustralian Longitudinal Survey,1988: Wave 4, Level 2: File h
Primary InvestigatorParkinson, G.
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.00542-h
AbstractThis is the fourth wave of the youth area sample component of the Australian Longitudinal Survey . (See also SSDA Studies No. 377, 410, 420 and 491 for details of the four waves of the ALS list sample, and SSDA Studies No. 413, 421 and 489 for the first three waves of the youth area sample). The 1988 wave consisted of 6151 interviews with people aged 18 to 27. A multi-stage household based sample designed to represent all Australians in the age cohort, except those residing in sparsely settled areas, was employed. The survey aims mainly at providing data on the dynamics of the youth labour market, and in particular to address questions which are not readily covered with 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 and health. Basic demographic variables include age, sex, size of household, country of birth, racial origin, parental education and occupation, spouse's education, religion, income, and whether resident in an urban or rural area.

Methodology Content
Sampling Procedurestratified multi-stage equal probability sample The ALS Area sample is a three stage sample (dwellings being selected from CDs which are selected from previously selected CES catchment areas). It is an approximately equal probability sample. The sample comprises 63 CES office catchment areas from which 600 Census CDs were selected. 15 persons aged 16 to 25 in September 1985 were then selected from each CD to give a total sample of 9000 persons (in 1985).

WeightingWeighting criteria The use of age and sex in relation to known frequencies to obtain representativeness Weighting procedures Population totals (or benchmarks) were available from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for each capital city and the remainder of each state, classified by age and sex. Weights were derived by counting the number of respondents in each region by age, by sex cell, and dividing this number into the appropriate benchmark. 140 cells were used for this analysis, being based on 14 regions, 5 age groups and 2 genders.
