Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) Rationale documents

The Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) rationale documents were developed to assist data users by providing contextual information on the scales and items included in the LSAC dataset. The Rationale documents are provided in two separate excel spreadsheets. The first spreadsheet presents background information on scales introduced from Waves 1 to 3 and the second includes all items and scales introduced at Waves 4 and 5.

To access these documents you will need to read and agree to the legal disclaimer below.
