Technical papers

Technical papers assist data users and address topics such as sample design, attrition and weighting. They include the LSAY user guide series, the LSAY derived variables series, and papers on specific topics such as weighting and attrition. User guides are available for each LSAY cohort and bring together all associated technical documentation into a single comprehensive document. The guides aim to address all aspects of the LSAY data including: how to access the data; data restrictions; variable naming conventions; topic maps; classifications and code frames; weights; and derived variables.

Please note that the questionnaires and frequency tables are no longer included in the technical paper series and now have their own publication type.
