The Australian Government Department of Education and Training (AGDET) has developed a correspondence table between the International Standard Classification of Education 2011 (ISCED 2011) and the Australian Standard Classification of Education – Level of Education. A link to the correspondence table has been added to the Broad Education Concepts page in the Education Standard Variables Guide for the convenience of users of these classifications and related statistics. While the Australian Bureau of Statistics cooperated with AGDET during the development of the correspondence table, the published correspondence ultimately reflects the AGDET interpretation of ISCED 2011.

The Collection Methods page in the Education Standard Variables Guide has been amended to reflect changes in Year 7 attainment from the final year of Primary Education to the first year of Junior Secondary Education in several jurisdictions of Australia from the commencement of the 2015 school year.

The Collection Methods page in the Standard for Highest Educational Attainment variables, Version 1.6, was updated to include a paragraph about Editing Procedures.
