This data item describes whether someone is currently attending school or a tertiary education institution full-time.
Tertiary education includes University, Technical and Further Education (TAFE) college, or other educational institutions and colleges (excluding primary and secondary/high schools).
Only people aged 15 to 24 years are asked about educational attendance in the Labour Force Survey (LFS). Attending full-time education usually limits labour force participation, and so this data item provides insight into the issues around youth unemployment and participation.
For the educational attendance of people across a broader range of ages, refer to the data item Educational enrolment [EDUENROC].
