2. applies expenditure weights to enrolment data to implicitly capture some aspects of quality change.
In addition, teaching services provided by universities have continued to evolve, and this evolution is continuing as a result of COVID-19. The output measures proposed in this paper provide greater scope for incorporating future compositional and quality change.
There is little consistent disaggregated data relating to the volume of university output, which is a barrier to measurement. The experimental indexes in this paper are based on datasets published by the Commonwealth Department of Education, Skills and Employment, covering all 37 public universities. The ABS worked closely with Dr Aaron Nicholas of Deakin University on the analysis presented here.
The ABS invites feedback from the public on the experimental methods proposed in this paper. For further discussion of these methods please contact the ABS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
