    EDUCATION EXPENDITURE

    PAYING FOR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION

    Between 1992 and 2002, the proportion of university students financing their tertiary education through the Higher Education Contribution Scheme (HECS) dropped from 82% to 67%. This coincides with an increase in the number of overseas fee-paying students. This article examines sources of university funding and characteristics of university students based on their HECS-liability status.

    EDUCATION AND WORK

    HIGHER EDUCATION GRADUATES IN THE LABOUR MARKET

    People with higher education qualifications are less likely to be unemployed, and also have higher incomes, than those without such qualifications. This article reports the growth in the proportion of people with higher education qualifications from the 1970s, and examines the labour market outcomes of people with higher education qualifications.

    PARTICIPATION IN EDUCATION

    ATTENDING PRESCHOOL

    In 2001, 56% of all children aged four years attended preschool. There was some variation in participation rates between Indigenous (46%) and non-Indigenous (57%) four year olds. The preschool participation rate for four year olds decreased as distance from large population centres increased. This article examines individual and family characteristics of preschool students, aged four years.
