Comments:Help on this term

Most recent data available for 2014 CRC report: 2012.

At this stage, data are not available by geo-location. Attendance data are not currently collected uniformly across jurisdictions and cannot be aggregated from school sector data.

Data may not be comparable across states and territories, or across school sectors, due to differences in collection and reporting processes.

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 2008; target year is 2020.
