This publication draws extensively on information provided freely by state and territory departments with responsibility for school education and the Australian Government Department of Education. Their continued co-operation enables the ABS to publish a wide range of education statistics. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905 and according to the requirements of the Privacy Act 1988 and applicable state and territory legislation.
These data are sourced from the NSSC (non-finance), which is a joint undertaking of the various state and territory departments of education, the Australian Government Department of Education, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), and the Standing Council on School Education and Early Childhood (SCSEEC). The scope of the collection is bound by the definitions of schools, students and staff published in the NSSC Data Collection Manual, which is available on request from the ABS.
