It uses large, nationally representative samples of young people to collect information about education and training, employment and social development. The LSAY program brings together two existing, long-established projects: the Youth in Transition survey conducted by the Australian Council for Educational Research and the Australian Youth Survey conducted by the former Australian Department of Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs. Survey participants (collectively known as a 'cohort') enter the study when they turn 15 years old, or as was the case in earlier studies, when they were in Year 9. Individuals are contacted annually until they are 25 years of age. Studies began in 1995, 1998, 2003, 2006 and more recently in 2009. Over 10,000 students start out in each cohort. Since 2003, the first survey wave has been integrated with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). In 2006, a nationally representative sample of 14,170 students aged 15 years was selected to participate in PISA and this sample became the fourth cohort of the LSAY program. This is referred to as the LSAY Y06 cohort. As part of PISA, assessments in mathematical literacy, reading literacy and scientific literacy were administered in schools to provide information on student achievement. Students also completed a background questionnaire about themselves, their families, their views on a range of science-related issues, the environment, educational and vocational plans, attitudes to school and learning, work experience, workplace learning, and part-time work. In 2007, members of the Y06 cohort were contacted for the first of their annual LSAY telephone interviews. The questionnaire for their 2007 interview included questions on school, transitions from school, post-school education and training, work, job history, job search activities, health, living arrangements, finance and general attitudes. Subsequent surveys asked similar questions, but with the emphasis changing from school to post-school education, training and work, depending on the young person's circumstances. Since 2012, respondents were given the option to complete their interviews online.
