This July 2000 report from the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research to the Department of Employment, Workplace Relations and Small Business describes the strengths and limitations of the data collected in the Longitudinal Survey of Indigenous Job Seekers, and provides an overview of how Indigenous labour market behaviour changes over time. The survey involved interviewing 2,500 Indigenous Australian job seekers aged 15 to 65 in selected urban, rural and remote centres three times over an eighteen-month period. The main aim of the report is to describe the major patterns of participation in employment, education and training and identify those pathways most likely to result in job seekers successfully making the transition to employment.
