Study TitleAustralian Youth Survey, 1992: wave 4: File y17
Primary InvestigatorEmployment, Education and Training Department

AbstractThis is the fourth wave of a survey program based on a cohort of young people aged 16-19 in 1992, and known as the Australian Youth Survey (AYS). The first, second and third waves of the AYS constitute SSDA study numbers 561, 609 and 642 respectively. It is part of a program of Longitudinal studies known as the Australian Longitudinal Survey (ALS), which is a continuing collection of data from a separate sample of persons aged 16-25 in 1985, and 16-19 in 1990. This 1992 wave of the AYS consisted of 7633 interviews with people aged 16 to 19, split in to two files: a new cohort of 1198 16 year olds; and a group of 6435 respondents aged 17 years and over, who were previously interviewed in an earlier wave of the series. 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, health and attitudes to women working. Basic demographic variables include age, sex, size of household, country of birth, racial origin, parental education and occupation, religion, income, and whether resident in an urban or rural area. These data are similar to those collected in the ALS, but concentrate on a younger group to provide current data on issues such as school retention and school to work transition.

Population (Universe)Persons aged between 16 and 19 on 1 September 1992, in all areas of Australia except those in 'sparsely settled' areas (approximately 4%). In each survey year, people from earlier waves who are still 17-19 years old, remain in the sample, in one file, and a new cohort of 16 year olds is added, constituting a separate file.

Methodology Content
Sampling ProcedureStratified, multi-stage equal probability sample The AYS is a two stage sample (dwellings being selected from CD's which are selected on a PPS basis from census lists). It is an approximately equal probability sample. The sample comprised 700 Census Collection Districts (CD's), from each of which 10 persons aged 15 to 19 in September 1992 were selected to give approximately 7000 people.

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 in to the appropriate benchmark. Cells were used for the weighting, being based on 8 regions, 4 age groups, and 2 genders. An individual weighting variable is supplied for each respondent, to enable estimates from the sample to be comparable with the known population.
