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 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.
