Other issues caveats:

Indicator (a) is based on indicator (a) in the previous NDA, with one new additional measure included (measure a(4) — underemployment rate).

No new data available (2009 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC) reported for previous cycle. 2008 National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey (NATSISS) reported for baseline).
