Pivot tables



These pivot tables present information about the activity of young people up to a point in time. Information is presented on employment, education, study and work, and social indicators for the latest cohorts from the first wave of collection up to the most recently collected data. LSAY participants are grouped by the year of their first survey wave.

Selected demographics are presented in each of the pivot tables, including: sex, state, geographic location, school sector, country of birth and socioeconomic status.

LSAY uses large, nationally representative samples of young people to collect information about education and training, work, and social development. Data are initially collected through a combination of school achievement tests and a questionnaire administered at school. Subsequent data are gathered through annual telephone interviews. Since 2012, respondents have had the option to complete their interviews online.
