    Project Description

    This project extends a large longitudinal study of young people in Queensland. It aims to investigate the impact of
    social, political and economic changes on educational, workforce, partnering, family and housing transitions in
    early adulthood. It enhances scholarly understanding and public policy formation in these domains by tracking
    stability and change in the values, aspirations, health and well-being of a cohort of young people who were first
    surveyed as secondary school students a decade earlier. The project combines large scale survey research with
    in-depth qualitative interviewing to assess how global uncertainty and social traditions, institutions and inequalities
    structure the life pathways of young people in Australia.
