In this special issue of the AJLE, we bring together eight papers based for the most part on the first wave of HILDA Survey. While longitudinal surveys are like good wines-growing in value (generally) with age-the richness of the HILDA wave 1 data means that we can gain significant new insights into the workings of the Australian labour market from the Wave 1 cross-section without waiting for the results of subsequent waves to become available.
