Most recent data available for 2017 report (2015–16 reporting cycle) are 2014-15
Data sources for this indicator are:
The 2017 report includes 2014–15 NATSISS and 2014 SEW data.
The baseline report reported data from the 2008 NATSISS (Indigenous) and the 2008 SEW (non-Indigenous) as the supplementary data collection. Persons whose level of study is determined to be certificate level but is not able to be further defined (that is, Certificate nfd) are assumed to have attained below Certificate level II and are therefore excluded from the numerator.
SEW data: People whose level of study cannot be determined are assumed to have attained below Certificate level II and are therefore excluded from the numerator.
Prior to 2010, the SEW did not include people living in very remote areas. From 2010 onwards, the SEW includes people living in very remote areas except discrete Indigenous communities.
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 for Indigenous people aged 20–24 in Year 12 attainment or equivalent attainment rates by 2020) is 2006; baseline year for this measure is 2008; target year is 2020.
No data are available for reporting for measure (b) for the 2017 report, as this measure is yet to be developed.
