About LSAY research
Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) research provides an understanding of the key transitions and pathways in the lives of young people, particularly the transitions from compulsory schooling to further education and training and the labour market.
LSAY findings are used to produce a number of reports, including research reports, cohort reports, briefing papers and technical papers. There have been over 60 research reports produced since the first LSAY cohort commenced in 1995. Topics explored in these research reports cover:
- schools (including attitudes, engagement, subject choices);
- post-school study and transitions (including early leaving, pathways, tertiary education);
- work (including unemployment, earnings, job seeking); and
- equity and social aspects (including specific equity groups (rural, Indigenous), well-being, life satisfaction).
