Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for 2012 COAG Reform Council (CRC) report is 2010.

For the baseline report (2008-09), participation rates were not available by geo-location for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students – only for Indigenous and all students. For the 2011 2009-10 report onwards, data are available which allows reporting of participation for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students by geo-location.

Participation rates disaggregated by state/territory were reported for Indigenous students and all students in the (2008-09) baseline CRC report. Rates for non-Indigenous students are reported in the 2009-10 report onwards.

Exempt, absent and withdrawn students will be reported separately in the 2010-11 report onwards.

Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in reading, writing and numeracy within a decade) is 2008; baseline year for this indicator is 2008; target year is 2018.
