DescriptionThe survey had a number of aims. In the first place, to extend the time-series of data on higher leavers originally collected in 1962, 1970, and 1972, by including 1976 leavers. Secondly the survey was designed to extend the range of topics covered by previous surveys, and for the sample to cover a broader range of leavers, and thus to include not only O-grade presentees but also 'non-certificate' pupils. A further aim was to collect data for analyses of local topics of interest to collaborators. Ie the data should be able to support studies of particular areas, subjects, types of institution or jobs, and so on. Major variable categories include: survey administration, demographic variables, H and O subjects, academic history and results, attitudes to schooling, study habits, discipline, reasons for leaving, work, recreational facilities, further education.
