Sector statistics provide important insights into enrolment trends in Queensland’s independent schooling sector and across specific student groups such as boarders, students with 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 and the Non-Government Schools Census (Commonwealth) August Collection.
- an analysis of school-aged children and their parents drawn from the ABS Census of Population and Housing, which occurs 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.
Each year Independent Schools Council of Australia (ISCA) produces a national snapshot of independent schooling in Australia.
