This directory is a guide to the range of national statistical resources available, relating to education and training activity in Australia. It is designed to assist users to identify publicly available data collections and publications.
The directory covers all recent national ABS statistical collections which have education and training as a direct focus. It also includes a range of other national ABS data collections where the primary focus is not education and training, but which never-the-less contain data relevant to education and training. Also included are national statistical collections and various publications or statistical series from non-ABS sources that analysts may find useful.
In this directory, 'collections' are surveys, censuses, or administrative by-products from which publicly available data is produced. Related publications are relevant published compendiums or analytical reports which may use multiple collections as their source.
In this directory, each collection entry provides a description of the collection along with specific details of the scope, dissemination, data items, geography and method and timing of the collection. Contact telephone numbers are provided for further inquiries. Entries for publications include a description and contact details and are updated on a regular basis.
