This data item describes the type of educational institution that a person is currently enrolled in and attending.

This item is mostly derived from the Survey of Education and Work, Australia (SEW, cat. no. 6227.0), which is held each year in May on seven-eighths of the sample in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) for people aged 15 to 64 years in 2008 and 15 to 74 years in 2009 and 2010.

For months other than May, the data is based on responses to the LFS question on Educational attendance [EDUSTATC], which is only collected from people aged 15 to 24 years. These responses are coded as either 'Secondary School' or 'Non-school institution nfd' as no further information is collected on the type of institution in the LFS.
