Primary InvestigatorAustralian Council for Educational Research
ADA IDau.edu.anu.ada.ddi.01013
AbstractThe Youth in Transition (YIT) project is a longitudinal study of four nationally representative cohorts of young people born in 1961, 1965, 1970 and 1975. The project studies the transition respondents made between school, post-school education and training, and work. This study focusses on the cohort born in 1970 and encompasses the period 1985 to 1994. Variables encompass three primary areas: a: post-secondary education/training including study area, institution attended, qualification received and reasons for continuing study; b: employment history including number of full-time and part-time jobs held since leaving school, type of job, weekly income and hours worked, and c: unemployment including length of time unemployed, reasons for unemployment and problems faced obtaining a job. Other variables include self-concept of ability, general feelings about life, financial matters and division of labour both at home and at work. Background variables include age, sex, country of birth, ethnic identity, language spoken at home, family size, living arrangements, marital status, number of children and some demographic information (e.g country of birth, level of education) for the respondents parents.
