NSW government schools by remoteness and SA4 grouping (2014-2019)

Data Notes:

  • SA4 grouping’ and ‘remoteness’ describe areas within NSW. Both are ABS standard categories. SA4 group relates to a predefined geographical area, based on population and labour markets, whereas remoteness is based on density of population.

  • From 2016 onwards, geographical data is reported by the ABS remoteness structure. See resources for SA4 group definitions. Prior to 2016 MCEECDYA categories were used. The MCEECDYA remoteness indicator divided schools into four categories, whereas the ABS remoteness structure uses 5 categories: Major Cities, Inner Regional, Outer Regional, Remote and Very Remote.

  • Since 2014, the department has used a geographical structure based on the new ABS Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). Groups of ASGS Statistical Area 4 (SA4) boundaries in NSW have been combined into 11 groups for reporting and publication of department data. Previous publications compared enrolments in DEC regions.
