There are no updated data available for this cycle of reporting.
Most recent available data are from the ABS 2011 Census reported in the 2014 report.
2011 Census data were provided for 2013 reporting but were not available disaggregated by remoteness. 2011 Census data were resupplied for 2014 reporting disaggregated by remoteness.
The baseline report reported data from the 2006 Census as the main data collection.
For people 'with' a non-school qualification:
For people 'working towards' a non-school qualification:
The denominator excludes people whose level of non-school qualification or attendance status was not stated.
At this stage, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) advises that information is only available on qualification levels for those who have completed studies (not those who are currently studying). Therefore, the ABS recommended restricting the definition for baseline reporting accordingly to those who have completed Certificate Level III or above, and those currently studying a non-school qualification.
Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in employment outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians within a decade) is 2008; baseline year for this measure is 2006.
