Comments:Help on this term

For a):

The most recent data available is from the ABS 2011 Census.

Data sources for this measure are:

  • 2011 Census.

The baseline report reported data, for measure a) only, from the 2006 Census.

People 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 measure is 2006; target year is 2020.

For b):

No data is available for reporting for measure b) for the 2013 reporting cycle, as this measure is yet to be developed.

Data disaggregated by remoteness area were not available for reporting during the 2013 reporting cycle.
