Student Equity Data

NCSEHE Student Equity Data Program

Student Equity Data interactive resource

NCSEHE annual briefing notes

A core mission of the NCSEHE is to use official data sources to present student data in formats to support discussion and analysis of equity issues in Australia.

The Centre’s activities in this area include the listing of key data sources, identifying important research areas, and reporting on recent trends in student equity.

The NCSEHE has initiated a project to present student equity data for Australia’s higher education system. This will include an analysis of student equity data across:

  • all states and territories
  • higher education providers
  • student equity categories.

Interactive resources will allow researchers, practitioners, institutions, students and policymakers to examine trends in higher education enrolment in Australia in recent years, and in relation to equity group enrolment. This will provide an important platform for examining trends in equity in higher education with a view to sparking and sustaining debate in new and creative ways.

The first part of this project is the Equity Data page. This page will be built upon to provide further data on equity outcomes in Australia.

For a summary of recent trends in student equity in Australian higher education, please see the NCSEHE’s recent briefing note on the system’s performance between 2012 and 2017.
