Social futures & life pathways of young people in Queensland: waves 6 & 7

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.
