The apparent retention rate to Year 12 is the percentage of students who remain in secondary education from Year 7 to Year 12. To calculate the apparent retention rate in 2001, the total number of full-time students in Year 12 in 2001 is divided by the number of full-time students who were in Year 7 in 1996. The resulting figure is converted to a percentage.
Overall the number of students remaining in school to a senior secondary level has increased significantly over the past two decades. This steady increase has occurred at both a national and State level, despite Tasmania’s retention rates being relatively low in comparison with Australia’s. The total Year 12 retention rate for Tasmanian schools has improved from 26.7 in 1981, to 68.7 in 2001 while the total Year 12 retention rate nationally has improved from 34.8 in 1981, to 73.4 in 2001.
