This month's SA Stats presents an overview of changes in full-time student, school and teaching staff numbers in South Australia between 1993 and 2009, with a particular focus on the changes in male staff numbers by sector (government and non-government), and by school level (primary and secondary). Discussion will be centred on data sourced from Schools, Australia (cat. no. 4221.0), with findings from 'Staff in Australia's Schools 2007' (DEST) also included. Data collected by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) relating to commencing student enrolment numbers for initial teacher training is introduced to explore recent trends in approved teacher training enrolments, particularly by males.

The occupation of 'teacher' has historically been seen as a job for women and this predominance is increasing. In 1993 approximately 37% of teaching staff in South Australia were males but by 2009 this proportion had fallen to 31%.

Topics which have been updated with new data in this month's issue of SA Stats include: Construction; Consumption; Housing Finance; International Merchandise Trade; Investment; Labour Force; State Accounts; and Water.
