Disaggregation: National and state/territory by engagement in work/education status, by Indigenous status

Most recent data available for 2010 CRC baseline report: 2006 (Census)

The Census 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.
