892 surveys were conducted covering topics such as employment experiences and knowledge of workplace rights and responsibilities at work and patterns of current employment. Two thirds of survey participants (579) were year 9 students and one third of participants (313)were year 11 students. Participants were from 19 high schools (3 Catholic, 16 State) from metropolitan, regional and rural Queensland. The last survey question was an open question which invited students to write an essay on how they saw work, family and leisure time in the future. There is a total of 100 variables per participant.
