Method of collection
The Adult Learning Survey was conducted as part of the 2006–07 Multi-Purpose Household Survey (MPHS), which is conducted throughout Australia as a supplement to the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS). After the LFS had been fully completed for each in-scope person, a randomly selected person aged 25-64 years was asked the additional MPHS questions in a personal interview. Data were collected using Computer Assisted Interviewing (CAI), whereby responses are recorded directly onto an electronic questionnaire in a notebook computer, generally during a telephone interview.
The results of the 2006-07 ALLS were released in December 2007.
