Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Indicator|
|Short name:||PI 19-Apparent retention rates from 7/8 to year 10 and year 12, 2011|
|Description:||The apparent retention rates from years 7/8, to year 10 and year 12, by Indigenous status.|
|Rationale:||Successful completion of Year 12 is critical to improving the economic and social status of Indigenous peoples. Higher levels of education improve employment prospects, health, and wellbeing. Improvements in retention rates are crucial to the achievement of headline education outcomes such as completion of Years 10 and 12, with the latter being a major component of the attainment of Year 12 or Certificate II.|

Collection and usage attributes
|Computation:||100 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator).|
|Numerator:||To year 10: number of full time students in year 10 in reference year.|
To year 12: number of full time students in year 12 in reference year.
|Numerator data elements:|
|Denominator:||Number of full time students from the corresponding cohort in the first year of secondary schooling.|
|Denominator data elements:|
NIRA specified disaggregation: National, state/territory & geo-location by Indigenous status.
Available disaggregation: National & state/territory by Indigenous status.
|Disaggregation data elements:|
Most recent data available for 2011 CRC report: 2009.
At this stage, data are not available by geo-location.
A number of factors may affect the accuracy of this measure, including repeating students, migration, inter-sector transfers and enrolment policies (such as different age/grade structures across jurisdictions). Therefore, the cohorts of students in year 10 and year 12 are not necessarily the same cohort of students in year 7/8.
It should be noted that relatively small changes in student numbers can result in large movements in retention rates.
Baseline year for this indicator is 2008; target year is 2020.
