Sector statistics provide important insights into enrolment trends in Queensland’s independent schooling sector and across specific student groups such as boarders, students with a disability, Indigenous and international students.
Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) provides:
- snapshots of the enrolment data from the annual Non-State School Census (State) February Collection;
- snapshots of the data from the annual Non-Government Schools Census (Commonwealth) August Collection; and
- analysis of school-aged children and their parents drawn from the ABS Census of Population and Housing (every five years).
ISQ uses the data to inform its work with schools and in its representations to governments and other key decision-making bodies.
Members can also access finer-grained reports with enrolment trend data at a local government area level.
