  • An analysis of how work status (full-time, part-time, involuntary part-time) is related to individuals’ level of education;
  • A review of the relationship between fields of education and tuition fees, unemployment rates and earnings premiums;
  • An indicator showing how many of the students who enter a tertiary programme ultimately graduate from it;
  • An indicator on the relationship between educational attainment and two health-related concerns, obesity and smoking; and
  • Trend data covering the years 1995 to 2010-11 for all the key indicators.
