New snapshot of young Aussies at school & work
New data reveals a gender gap still exists when it comes to choosing year 11 and 12 subjects, with more boys choosing maths and more girls opting for humanities.

The infographic Generation Z: Life at 17 uses LSAY data to provide a snapshot of 17-year-old Australians' study, work, and living arrangements in 2017, as they acquire the skills and experience they need to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

The data also reveals that around 60% of young Australians have a job while at school.

Many school students are part of the new gig economy, with 8% undertaking 'gig work' like:

  • online tasks
  • babysitting
  • cleaning.
