NO NEW DATA FOR 2012 REPORTING.

Data sources for this indicator are:

  • Main data collection: 2006 Census.
  • Supplementary data collections:  NATSISS (Indigenous); NATSIHS (Indigenous); and Survey of Education and Work (SEW) (non-Indigenous).

The baseline report reported data from the 2006 Census as the main data collection and data from the 2008 NATSISS (Indigenous) and 2008 SEW (non-Indigenous) as the supplementary data collection. The next available data source will be the 2011-12 NATSIHS for the Indigenous population.

Persons whose level of study is determined to be certificate level but is not able to be further defined (i.e., Certificate not further defined (nfd)) are assumed to have attained below Certificate level II and are therefore excluded from the numerator. 

People whose level of study cannot be determined are assumed to be have attained below Certificate II and are therefore excluded from the numerator. 

Excludes people whose educational attainment is not stated from the numerator and denominator (applicable only to Census data)

The Indigenous undercount in the Census may introduce bias into the results for Indigenous disaggregation, which may affect comparability across states and territories.

Baseline year for NIRA target (Halve the gap in Year 12 or equivalent attainment rates by 2020) is 2008; baseline year for this indicator is 2006; target year is 2020.
