NOTES


ABOUT THIS RELEASE

This release contains a summary of state, territory and national data for the broad categories of schools, students and staff at the 2008 school census date of the 1st August. More detailed data, including derived participation and progression measures, will be published in the Final publication, due out in March 2009, or in the detailed Data Cubes and spreadsheets subsequently published on the ABS website.

The stucture of schooling in the NT changed in 2008 with year 7 schooling now considered part of secondary education. This change will affect the 2008 comparisons of school, students and staff data with previous years.

These data are sourced from the (non-finance) National Schools Statistics Collection (NSSC), which is a joint undertaking of the various State and Territory Departments of Education, the federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR), the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), and the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA). The scope of the collection is bound by the definitions of schools, students and staff as defined.

The statistics in this release are preliminary and may be subject to change.
