NOTES


ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

This publication presents information about the educational experience and associated characteristics of persons aged 15 to 64 years and persons aged 65 to 74 years who are in the labour force or marginally attached to the labour force, especially in relation to their labour force status.

Statistics in this publication were collected in May 2011 as a supplement to the Australian Bureau of Statistics' (ABS) monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS).

Information collected in the survey includes: labour force characteristics; participation in education in the year prior to the survey, and in the survey month; type of educational institution; level of education of current and previous study; highest year of school completed; level of highest non-school qualification; level of highest educational attainment; transition from education to work; enrolment experience; selected characteristics of apprentices and trainees; and unmet demand for apprenticeships and traineeships.

Information on the concepts and methods used in the survey, reliability of the results, definitions and interpretation are included in the Explanatory Notes, Technical Note and Glossary. Unless otherwise specified, differences between data items highlighted in the Summary of Findings are statistically significant (refer to paragraphs 14-16 of the Technical Note).

This release consists of Data Cubes in spreadsheet format only. An expanded range of statistics are available in the publication Education and Work, Australia - Additional data cubes, May 2011 (First Issue) (cat. no. 6227.0.55.003).


ROUNDING

As estimates have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between the sum of component items and the published total. Published percentages are calculated prior to rounding and therefore some discrepancy may occur between these percentages and those that could be calculated from the rounded figures.
