This data user guide is a reference tool for the users of the Growing Up in Australia: the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children (LSAC) datasets.

This document is intended to provide the necessary information to be able to use the LSAC data, and includes the survey methodology, file structure and variable naming conventions. Particular issues are highlighted to ensure data analysts apply the LSAC data appropriately in their research.

The current version of the LSAC Data User Guide has been updated by AIFS.
