Respondents were predominantly 1992 graduates. The 16-page narrative portion of the report is followed by two chapters that provide the findings of the survey expressed in terms of the National Vocational Education and Training System national goals, objectives, and performance measures.

Chapter 4 contains the national findings. Chapter 5 presents findings for each state and territory. Appendix 1 contains the summary of results from the survey.
