As Australia's population ages and much of the current workforce heads to retirement, making a smooth transition to the workforce becomes imperative for young people. Using the 1995 cohort of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, this project examines how long it takes for young people to move from education to work, and identifies factors that distinguish people who are able to move quickly into employment from those who take many months to find work. The report finds that, compared to their better educated peers, young people who do not finish Year 12 take significantly longer to get a job. Note: publication amended 11 July 2011—table 2, 2006 Census data.
