Most recent data available for 2010 CRC baseline report: 2008 NATSISS (Indigenous) and SEW 2008 (non-Indigenous).
The NATSISS does not provide information on level of qualification for those working towards qualification (only for those who have completed). Therefore, the data on education/training includes persons aged 18-24 engaged in education/training at any qualification level. Work is required to collect data by qualification level of current study.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is exploring options for collecting level and field of current study in future household surveys, commencing with the General Social Survey (GSS) 2010. The ABS is not planning on collecting these data items in future Census’s.
Other issues caveats:
The SEW does not include people living in very remote areas which may affect the comparability of results.
