This data item describes whether someone is currently enrolled in and attending full-time or part-time education.

Education includes University, Technical and Further Education (TAFE) college, or other educational institutions and colleges (including secondary/high schools).

This item is mostly derived from the Survey of Education and Work, Australia (SEW, cat. no. 6227.0), which is held each year in May on seven-eighths of the sample in the Labour Force Survey (LFS) for people aged 15 to 64 years in 2008 and 15 to 74 years in 2009 and 2010.

The data is collected from people across a broader range of ages, unlike the LFS data item Educational attendance [EDUSTATC] which is only collected from people aged 15 to 24 years.

Some additional data has also been assembled from the Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia, 2008-09 (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0) for a small portion in the out-going group of the LFS (the one-eighth of the LFS sample that has been in the survey for the full 8 months) in each month between July 2008 and June 2009. Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected from a selected person via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
