AbstractThe pathways project represents a major study on the general attitudes and sense of well-being of students in Australian schools. The survey covered a number of different areas of experience in the lives of the students, and combined questions of 'fact' with inquiries about the students' feelings and attitudes. Topics included respondent's schooling, leisure, family and thoughts on the future. Background variables included respondent's year level at school and sex. Data not available on Nesstar.

Methodology Content
Sampling ProcedureA sampling procedure was adopted based on the size of the various schools. The aim was to reach a total sample of about 2,500 students from Year 9 and Year 11. In small schools with a total of under 150 students, all the students in the relevant year level were surveyed. In medium schools with about 100-150 in each of the year levels, a 50 percent sample was taken. In larger schools with over 150 in each year level, 100 students in each level were surveyed. The sampling ensured that, despite the small size of some of the sub-groups in the smaller schools, the overall pattern of responses could be taken as a reliable guide to the issues that needed to be addressed by each school as a result of the survey.
