25 years of LSAY: research from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth
“The Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) are a series of nationally representative surveys of young people, which follow their transitions from compulsory schooling to post-school education and into employment. The survey program is administered by the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.
This publication presents research highlights from the past 25 years of the LSAY program, with a focus on schooling, VET in schools programs, the influences of socioeconomic status and demographics on later opportunities, and pathways taken from school into further education and the workforce. This publication is not an exhaustive reflection of LSAY’s long research history but aims to showcase the value of the data.”
