REVISIONS TO TRAVEL CREDITS BY STATE (TABLE 3)
The methodology for calculating travel credits by state has changed. Formerly state allocation of education-related travel credits were calculated based on intended state of stay for student sub-class visa holders as provided by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. State allocation is now determined using state of enrolment data as sourced from Department of Education and Training’s Commonwealth Provider Registration and International Student Management System. The new methodology has been used to produce the 2016 data, and subsequently revise data from 2012 to 2015, so that a historical time-series is available to users. Because of this change in methodology, a trend break occurs for all states from 2012.
