This paper contains a selection of education, family and community statistical indicators for New South Wales. It aims to provide a snapshot of trends, with a focus on the overall situation in NSW. Where relevant, comparisons are made to the situation in the other Australian States and Territories.
This paper updates the education and community sections of the paper, Health, Education and Community Indicators for NSW, published in 2010 as part of the statistical indicators series.
The sources of the data used are noted at the conclusion of each indicator. The Australian Bureau of Statistics is the primary source for the paper, but a number of other references have been utilised.
