Technical Notes

1. Early Childhood Education

General notes

For this data European/Pākehā refers to people who affiliate as New Zealand European, Other European or European (not further defined). For example, this includes and is not limited to people who consider themselves as Australian (excluding Australian Aborigines), British and Irish, American, Spanish, and Ukrainian.

A child can be enrolled in more than one ECE service at any time.

The 20 hours ECE policy entitles parents to claim up to 20 hours in ECE at teacher-led services. That is, up to six hours per day and up to 20 hours per week.

The island group for a small number of Pasifika are not known. These figures are not shown separately but are included in the totals for the Island Group tables.

Prior participation rates show the proportion of children who have regularly attended ECE in the six months prior to starting school.

Quality in early childhood education

Registered teachers include: holders of a New Zealand Teachers Council (NZTC) practising certificate that is NZTC full registration; holders of an NZTC practising certificate that is subject to NZTC confirmation; and holders of an NZTC practising certificate that is NZTC provisional.

Teachers at licensed teacher-led services include teachers at education and care services, casual education and care services, kindergartens, and home-based service coordinators. Caregivers in home-based services are excluded, as are adults on duty in parent-led services, including playcentres and Te Kōhanga Reo.

2. Schooling

General notes

All schooling enrolment, National Standard and engagement data is prioritised in the order of Māori, Pasifika, Asian, other groups except European/Pākehā, and European/Pākehā. For this data European/Pākehā refers to people who affiliate as New Zealand European, Other European or European (not further defined). For example, this includes and is not limited to people who consider themselves as Australian (excluding Australian Aborigines), British and Irish, American, Spanish, and Ukrainian.

Schools in the lowest quintile (quintile 1) draw their students from communities with the highest degree of socio-economic disadvantage.

Achievement at school

In 2014, students were required to obtain 10 literacy and 10 numeracy credits at level 1 to achieve an NCEA Level 1 qualification. This is an increase on the 8 credits previously required to achieve NCEA Level 1. No historical adjustment has been made for this change.

18-year-olds with NCEA Level 2

Cohort numbers are identified through the Ministry's ENROL database and based on New Zealand Domestic Students who turned 18 within a calendar year.  Attainment details are sourced from the Ministry of Education School Leaver dataset, New Zealand Qualifications Authority, and Tertiary Single Data Returns (SDRs). 

Effective teaching

Registered teachers include registered principals and staff in management positions, as well as classroom teachers. Registered Pasifika teacher numbers are only available for State and State-integrated schools.

Pasifika representation on the board of trustees

The measure for the representation on the board of trustees indicator takes schools that have enough Pasifika students on their rolls to expect to have at least one Pasifika board member, that is, if a schools roll is 20% Pasifika this relates to one Pasifika board member on a board with five members. This measure restricts the number of schools to those where a Pasifika board member is required, it excludes all of the schools with a small or zero percentage of Pasifika students. This measure exclusively focuses on schools that need to have Pasifika representation on their boards of trustees and whether or not they have achieved this.

3. Tertiary 

General notes

Tertiary data each year is revised and updated, therefore data in this Report may differ from previously published monitoring reports

For the achievement in tertiary education indicator European/Pākehā refers to people who affiliate as New Zealand European, Other European or European (not further defined). For example, this includes but is not limited to people who consider themselves Australian (excluding Australian Aborigines), British and Irish, American, Spanish and Ukrainian.

Students who identify with more than one ethnic group have been counted in each group. Consequently, the sum of the students in each ethnic group may not add to the total number of students.

Students who were enrolled at more than one qualification level have been counted in each level. Consequently, the sum of the students in each qualification level may not add to the total number of students.

Totals also include those students whose qualification level or ethnic group is unknown.

Participation in tertiary education

Participation rate is the percentage of the population aged 15 and over who were enrolled at any time during the year in tertiary education. Participation rates are not available for 'Other' ethnic group; these are included in the total. Separate participation rates are not available for 'Pasifika', 'Asian' and 'European/Pākehā' ethnic groups before 2000.

Retention rate is defined as the percentage of domestic students starting a qualification at a public provider in 2013 who are still enrolled or have completed by the end of 2014.

Private training establishment includes other tertiary education providers (OTEPs). Data excludes those private training establishments that did not receive government tuition subsidies.

These rates are age-standardised to the 2006 national age distribution (ie, they represent the rate a group would have if they had the same age distribution as the 2006 national age distribution).

Data relates to students enrolled at any time during the year with a tertiary education provider in formal qualifications of greater than 0.03 equivalent full-time students (EFTS) (more than one week's duration).

Data excludes all non-formal learning and on-job industry training.

Students who identify with more than one ethnic group have been counted in each group but only once in the total. Consequently, the sum of the students in each group may not add to the total number of students. Students who were enrolled at more than one qualification level have been counted in each level but only once in the total. Consequently, the sum of the students in each qualification level may not add to the total number of students.

Totals also include those students whose qualification level or ethnic group is unknown.

Achievement in tertiary education

The completion rate is now defined as the percentage of students who have successfully completed a qualification at the same level as or higher than the one they started.

Data relates to domestic students enrolled at any time during the year with a tertiary education provider in formal qualifications of greater than 0.03 EFTS.

The total includes those students who have changed qualification level, whereas rates for individual levels do not.

Data tables

Students who were enrolled in more than one provider type have been counted in each provider type.

Students who were enrolled in more than one level of study have been counted in each level.

Students who were enrolled in more than one sub-sector have been counted in each sub-sector.

Private training establishment includes OTEPs.

This tertiary data has been revised and so may differ from previously published figures. It excludes all non-formal learning and on-job industry training, as well as those private training establishments that did not receive government tuition subsidies.Bachelors relates to bachelors degrees only. Doctorate relates to PhDs only.

4. General Notes 

Ethnicity

Ethnicity is the ethnic group or groups to which an individual belongs. The concept of ethnicity adopted by the Ministry of Education is a social construct of group affiliation and identity. The Ministry of Education uses the definition of ethnicity used by Statistics New Zealand, namely:

A social group whose members have one or more of the following characteristics they:

  • share a sense of common origins
  • claim a common and distinctive history and destiny
  • possess one or more dimensions of collective cultural individuality
  • feel a sense of unique collective solidarity.

Prioritisation of ethnicity is when people are allocated to one of the ethnicities they have recorded that they affiliate with. This usually occurs when data is collected manually and/or aggregate data returns are collected centrally. This allocation is performed using a predetermined order of ethnic groups. The purpose of this prioritisation is to ensure that ethnic groups of policy importance are not swamped by the European/Pākehā ethnic group.

Total response ethnicity works by considering each ethnicity a person affiliates with as one data entry. For example, the data relating to an individual who affiliates as both Māori and Pasifika will be included in both categories. This approach can be undertaken in tertiary analysis as most data is collected in a disaggregated fashion.

Some measures in this report use prioritised ethnicity and some use total response, it is indicated along with each measure the way in which ethnicity has been recorded.

In this Report, European/Pākehā refers to people who affiliate as New Zealand European, Other European or European (not further defined). For example, this includes but is not limited to people who consider themselves Australian (not including Australian Aborigines), British and Irish, American, Spanish, Ukrainian and Czech.

The Pasifika ethnic group can be sub-divided into seven Island groups:

  • Samoan
  • Cook Islands Māori
  • Tongan
  • Niuean
  • Fijian
  • Tokelauan
  • Other Pasifika.

Data by Island group for relevant indicators can be found in Appendix 1 tables.

Regional council

Regional data is the regional council area the ECE service or school each student was located in. The Chatham Islands County is a separate county outside the standard regional council boundaries.

For schooling data, the regional council category of 'Not Applicable' includes The Correspondence School and a small number of students (<30) whose school campus covers more than one regional council area.

For schooling data, the New Zealand total includes students from all regional council areas, including those with less than five students in the corresponding indicator.

Decile

Students from low socio-economic communities face more barriers to learning than students from high socio-economic communities. Schools that draw their rolls from these low socio-economic communities are given greater funding to combat these barriers. The mechanism used to calculate and allocate this additional funding is most often known as school deciles.

Schools are assigned a socio-economic score based on five census-derived socio-economic factors. Schools are then ranked in order of this score and divided into 10 even groups called deciles. The 10% of schools with the lowest scores are considered decile 1 schools, the next 10% of schools are considered decile 2 schools and so on. Decile 1 schools have the highest proportion of low socio-economic students, decile 10 schools have the least (note: this does not mean students from decile 10 schools are 'rich'). See the Ministry of Education website for a more detailed explanation of how a decile is calculated.
