|Further data development / collection required:|
The current structure of the data collection does not include collection of data at the geo-location level.
Further improvements are required to provide comparable data across school sectors and states/territories. Attendance rates for the total of all schools are required (data on government, catholic and independent school sectors cannot currently be aggregated).
A national standard has been endorsed by SCSEEC and nationally comparable reporting (excluding NSW) is anticipated for the 2014 collection period for reporting in 2015.
