Indigenous participation data
The March quarter 2020 report includes revised Indigenous participation data for the period July 2018 to March 2020. This is because inconsistencies were identified. As a result, the December quarter 2019 report does not include Indigenous data.
Users of Indigenous participation data should only refer to the revised Indigenous data tables for the periods September quarter 2018 to December quarter 2019.
These inconsistencies have since been addressed.
