A cohort study of unemployment as a cause of psychological disturbance in Australian youth.
Data from the Australian Longitudinal Survey, conducted by the Commonwealth Department of Employment, Education and Training, were analysed to estimate relative risks of psychological disturbance accompanying unemployment in young people aged 15-24 years.
Two cohorts were surveyed annually over 4 years during the mid-to-late-1980s; one from the general 15-24 year-old population (N=8995), and the other selected from Commonwealth Employment Service records (N=2403).
Such large respondent numbers allowed control of confounding by exclusion to isolate employment transition groups suitable for hypothesis testing and quantification of causal relationships.
