Research output: Other contributionOtherpeer-review


This dataset provides students the opportunity to practise working with qualitative longitudinal data. The data come from the Social Futures and Life Pathways of Young People in Queensland (“Our Lives”) Project, which is an ongoing sociological study that follows the social orientations of a single-age cohort of young people from Australia as they transition from adolescence into adulthood. The example focuses on extracts from qualitative interviews collected from individuals at two different time intervals, approximately six years apart. It explores how a young person’s views towards romantic relationships and family formation change over time. The data are provided by Dr. Jacqueline Laughland-Booÿ and Professor Zlatko Skrbiš from Monash University. The dataset file is accompanied by a Teaching Guide and a Student Guide.
