Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The Department for Education (DfE) commissioned the Our Future study (formerly known as the Second Longitudinal Study of Young People in England (LSYPE2)) at the beginning of 2013. This is one of the largest and most challenging studies of young people ever commissioned and aims to build upon the Next Steps study (LSYPE1), which began in 2004, following young people from the age of 13/14 onwards (Next Steps is held at the UK Data Archive under SN 5545 (End User Licence) and SN 7104 (Secure Access)).

The purposes of Our Future are:
  • to follow a sample of young people through the final years of compulsory education; through their transition from compulsory education to other forms of education, training employment, and other activities
  • to collect information about their career paths and about the factors affecting them; and
  • to provide a strategic evidence base about the lives and experiences of young people
It is intended that Our Future will track a sample of over 13,000 young people from the age of 13/14 annually through to the age of 20 (seven waves).

The study currently includes data from Wave 1 of Our Future. Face-to-face interviews with both the young people and their parents were conducted between April and September 2013 when the young people were 13/14 (in school Year 9).

Besides the End User Licence version, two other versions of the Our Future data are available from the UK Data Archive: the Secure Access version (SN 7838) and the Safe Room version (SN 7813), which are both subject to more restrictive access conditions. See the respective catalogue records for details of data contents.

Main Topics:
The survey covers a wide range of topics including:
  • the young person's family background;
  • parental socio-economic status;
  • personal characteristics;
  • attitudes, experiences and behaviours;
  • parental employment;
  • income and family environment as well as local deprivation;
  • the school(s) the young person attends/has attended;
  • the young person's future plans.
