Young people more qualified, but find it harder to get work than 10 years ago
The proportion of 23-year-old Australians who believe that a lack of jobs is why they can't secure work has more than doubled in the past ten years to 72%.

At the same time, young people are remaining in education for longer, with around 30% of 23-year-olds still studying in 2017 compared with 24% in 2007.

Life at 23: Then & Now uses data from the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth (LSAY) to provide a snapshot of how study, work, attitudes and home life have changed for Australians aged 23 in 2017 when compared with those of the same age in 2007.

LSAY tracks 15-year-olds over a ten-year period as they move from school into further study and training, work, and into adulthood. It provides valuable insight into key perspectives and changes for young Australians.

Information on how to access LSAY data is available from the LSAY website.
