|Computation:||100 x (Numerator ÷ Denominator).|
a) People aged 20–24 years who have completed Year 12 or whose level of highest non-school qualification is at AQF Certificate level II or above.
b) Measure is yet to be developed.
|Numerator data elements:|

b) Measure is yet to be developed.
|Denominator data elements:|
National, remoteness area: by Indigenous status.
|Disaggregation data elements:|
Data sources for this indicator are:
The baseline report reported data from the 2008 SEW (non-Indigenous) as the supplementary data collection. The next available data source will be the 2012-13 AATSIHS 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 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.
Prior to 2010, the Survey of Work and Education (SEW) did not include people living in very remote areas. From 2010 onwards, the SEW does not include people living in Indigenous communities in very remote areas. Whilst a reduced scope, this may still affect the comparability of results.
Prior to 2010, the SEW did not include the remoteness variable. Therefore, a non-Indigenous comparator for remoteness for the 2008 NATSISS is not reported.
The size of the standard errors mean that SEW data may not be adequate for measuring change over time.
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 2008; target year is 2020.
No data are available for reporting for measure b) for the 2014 reporting cycle, as this measure is yet to be developed.
