The annual National Report on Schooling in Australia (ANR) is published by the Ministerial Council on Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs (MCEETYA) through its Secretariat. The aim of the ANR is to detail the scope of schooling in Australia and describe the activities of the sector, monitor the effects and progress of policy initiatives, and detail the source, volume and direction of education finances. The report is delivered to Australian parliaments to inform policy makers and the Australian public.


The ANR is a compilation of data provided by state and federal education agencies, both through the finance and non-finance National Schools Statistics Collections, and from specialist work commissioned or delivered by MCEETYA itself.

Method of collection

The ANR collates data provided by the finance and non-finance NSSC agencies, the MCEETYA Secretariat, and other providers. The other sources include NCVER vocational education data, and ABS social surveys.
