This dataset has been constructed from the Scottish School Leavers Survey (SSLS) as part of research project – Education and Youth Transitions in England, Wales and Scotland 1984-2002 - funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (R000239852). A key part of the project was to create comparable time-series datasets, comparable over time and for England, Wales and Scotland, from the Youth Cohort Study (YCS) and Scottish School Leavers Survey (SSLS).
The SSLS is a general purpose postal-questionnaire survey of young people in Scotland, commissioned by the Scottish Executive. Since the 1980s the SSLS design has focused on cohorts of young people in their final year of compulsory schooling (in Scotland this is the S4 year-stage)
