Dataset Description (abstract)dc.description.abstractThe 1979 survey covered young people who had left school in the session 1977-78, including independent and grant-aided schools, but not special schools. It was based on a smaller sample than the earlier 1977 survey: 10 per cent of 0 and H grade leavers, and 20 per cent of non-qualified leavers, (compared with a sample of 40 per cent of all leavers in 1977). The questionnaires were based on those used in 1977, and repeated most of the earlier items. Several new questions were added and others were revised, and the non-qualified leavers' questionnaire was substantially re-designed to include extra items on job-seeking, early employment experience and the Youth Opportunities Programme.en_UK
