Longitudinal surveys of Australian youth research report ; n.33


The focus of this report is on participation in the final year of school. At present a little less than three-quarters of young Australians remain at school to Year 12. This report documents the differences in Year 12 participation rates between males and females, socioeconomic background, cultural background, and earlier school achievement. There are also differences associated with school sector and location. [Executive summary, ed]
