The study explores relationships between non-completion and selected socio-demographic and school-related factors, and changes in rates of school non-completion from the early 1980s to 2005. There is a particular emphasis on how socio-demographic and school-related factors over that period have influenced early school leaving.

The occupations and earnings of young Australians : the role of education and training /

by Marks, Gary N | Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth.

Publisher: Camberwell, Vic. Australian Council for Educational Research 2008Description: PDF.Notes: SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: "Social background plays only a small role in accounting for differences in occupational status and earnings at age 24, indicating that education is enhancing social mobility, according to this report. ; However, not all forms of post-secondary education and training are equally beneficial. In terms of earnings, a bachelor degree had the largest impact, increasing earnings by about 31 per cent on average. Apprenticeships increased earnings by about 23 per cent, a TAFE diploma increased earnings by about 14 per cent, and a university diploma by about 17 per cent. Completing a traineeship increased earnings by about 8 per cent and a TAFE certificate by about 5 per cent. ; Generally, young women had slightly higher levels of occupational status than did young men, but even during their early career weekly earnings were about 20 per cent less. Possible reasons for this include the higher proportions of young women in part-time work and gender differences in the types of jobs." -- APOAvailability: No items available

Publisher: Camberwell, Vic. Australian Council for Educational Research 1998Description: v, 38 p. : ill. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: September 1998 At head of title: LSAY Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth. This report forms part of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth: a research program that is financially supported by the Commonwealth Department of Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs Summary: This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee—employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.Availability: (1)
