Numbers of school age children
Can you tell me how many children there were in NSW in 2010 that were of school age?
We can use two online resources to find this information:
- Australian Bureau of Statistics Schools, Australia, 2010 - Under the 'Downloads' tab, you can open spreadsheets with detailed statistical information. Here you will find various statistics such as the number of children enrolled in primary and secondary school in each State.
- The Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE) - There is range of statistical reports available, which are accessed in PDF form. The earliest numbers are found in Statistical Bulletin - Schools and students in NSW, 2011.
