The 2016-17 Work-Related Training and Adult Learning TableBuilder provides data about formal and non-formal learning activities undertaken by Australians, with a particular focus on work-related training. Along with general demographic characteristics of people who undertake training, information available includes the reasons for participation, the time spent and costs associated with participation. Also covered are the barriers that prevent some people from undertaking training. A detailed list of data items is available on the Downloads tab.
The microdata enables users to tabulate, manipulate and analyse data. Steps to confidentialise the dataset are taken to ensure the integrity of data and maintain confidentiality of respondents. This includes removing any information that might uniquely identify an individual, reducing the level of detail for some items and collapsing some categories.
Approved users can combine information to assess the demographic, educational and employment characteristics of people who do and do not undertake work-related training.
