Data sources for this measure are:
The baseline report presented data from the 2008 NATSISS (Indigenous) and 2008 SEW (non-Indigenous) as the supplementary data collection.
The 2014 report presented data from the NATSIHS component of the 2012-13 AATSIHS (Indigenous) and the 2012 SEW (non-Indigenous).
For persons 'with' a non-school qualification:
For persons 'working towards' a non-school qualification:
Prior to 2010, the Survey of Work and Education (SEW) did not include people living in very remote areas. From 2010 onwards, the SEW includes people living in very remote areas excluding discrete Indigenous communities in very remote areas. This may continue to affect the comparability of results.
Prior to 2010, the SEW did not include the remoteness variable. Therefore, a non-Indigenous comparator for remoteness for the 2008 NATSISS is not reported.
The size of the standard errors mean that SEW data may not be adequate for measuring change over time.
Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in employment outcomes within a decade) is 2008; baseline year for this measure is 2008; target year is 2018.
