In their own words : insights into the concerns of young Australians /

by Mission Australia.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Mission Australia 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Mission Australia conducted its seventh annual National survey of young Australians with over 45,000 young people aged 11-24 years. The survey aimed to identify the important and emerging issues for young people through a series of questions on what they value, their issues of concern, where they turn for advice and support and who they admire. Young people from diverse communities in each state and territory across Australia participated. About half of the surveys were from young people aged between 11 and 14 years, a further 47% were from those aged 15 to 19 years and just under 1,000 were from young adults aged 20 to 24 years. ; Respondents were asked to rank the issues that concerned them from the list of options (see below). The top three issues were body image, drugs and family conflict with each of them of significant concern to around a quarter of respondents. There was no one ?standout? issue, with nine issues being of major concern to at least one in five respondents.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The causal effect of education on wages Revisited /

by Dickson, Matt.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labour 2009Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: This paper estimates the return to education using two alternative instrumental variable estimators: one exploits variation in schooling associated with early smoking behaviour, the other uses the raising of the minimum school leaving age. Each instrument estimates a 'local average treatment effect' and my motivation is to analyse the extent to which these differ and which is more appropriate for drawing conclusions about the return to education in Britain. I implement each instrument on the same data from the British Household Panel Survey, and use the over-identification to test the validity of my instruments. I find that the instrument constructed using early smoking behaviour is valid as well as being strong, and argue that it provides a better estimate of the average effect of additional education, akin to ordinary least squares but corrected for endogeneity. I also exploit the dual sources of exogenous variation in schooling to derive a further IV estimate of the retur! n to schooling. I find the OLS estimate to be considerably downward biased (around 4.6%) compared with the IV estimates of 12.9% (early smoking), 10.2% (RoSLA) and 12.5% (both instruments).Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
