A note about 2020 Higher Education Equity and Equity Performance Data

During the transition to the Tertiary Collection of Student Information (TCSI) System, enrolment numbers for students with disability were substantially under-reported in the case of several universities. This issue affects the 2020 access, participation, and success indicators and the 2020 retention rates. Caution should be taken when using the 2020 enrolment data points for students with disability. All other time points are unaffected.

If you require further information, a data request can be submitted to the Department. Please see the Data Requests, Data Protocols, Data Privacy and Visual Analytics Guide page.
