census-message-logo

This topic has been updated with 2016 Census data for the LGA or other primary area only. What's this?

In Kurunjang, 37% of people aged over 15 years had completed Year 12 schooling (or equivalent) as of 2011.

Kurunjang's school completion data is a useful indicator of socio-economic status. With other indicators, such as Proficiency in English, the data informs planners and decision-makers about people's ability to access services. Combined with Educational Qualifications it also allows assessment of the skill base of the population.

Derived from the Census question:

'What is the highest year of primary or secondary school the person has completed?'
