The education data items cover the present enrolment status of students over 15 years, as well as what qualifications people have attained and their field of study.

Most of the detailed educational data was not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS), but was collected in the following supplementary surveys and appended to the longitudinal data.
    • Education and Work, Australia (SEW, cat. no. 6227.0)
        Every May from seven-eighths of the LFS sample aged 15 to 64 years in 2008 and 15 to 74 years in 2009 and 2010.

    • Underemployed Workers, Australia (UEW, cat. no. 6265.0)
        Every September from underemployed workers in seven-eighths of the LFS sample

    • Labour Mobility, Australia (LMS, cat. no. 6209.0)
        February every 2 years from seven-eighths of the LFS sample

    • Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0)
        Every month from a selected person per household in one-eighth of the LFS sample
        Note: Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
