This annual product contains data on the numbers of schools, students, and staff involved in the provision or administration of school education in government and non-government schools, for all Australian states and territories including Other Territories and Norfolk Island. It includes student-related measures, such as apparent retention rates, and ratios of students to teaching staff. The statistics are derived from administrative records compiled by each state and territory and the Australian Government.

The initial release of data cubes in February contains time-series student data, including counts and FTE values, for full-time and part-time students. Student data can be disaggregated by various combinations of state/territory, school affiliation, Indigenous status, sex, grade and age. The data cubes are supported with summary pages and explanatory notes.

Summary tables and additional data cubes on schools, staff and student-related rates and ratios will be released in March 2016.
