Contents >> Collection Overview >> Age Reference Date


The National ECEC Collection age reference date for aggregate collections is 1 July. In 2010, all states and territories that provided aggregate level data, collected age at this reference date, except South Australia, which collected 'age at last birthday' and Victoria, which collected age at 30 April. All jurisdictions are developing improvements to their data collections to enable the collection of date of birth, instead of age reference date, to ensure a more accurate measure of age.
