ABOUT THIS RELEASE
The data in this release relate to government and non-government schools, students and school staff, and were collected through the non-finance National Schools Statistics Collection (NSSC), which was established through the work of the Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA). For more detailed information about the structure and scope of the NSSC refer to the Glossary.
A final publication, containing a more extensive range of statistics on schools, students and staff will be published in Schools, Australia, 2007 (Cat.no.4221.0) on the 28th February 2008.
Because estimates have in some cases been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
The statistics in this release are preliminary and may be subject to change.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
