Data Collections Address Collection
The Student Residential Address and Other Information Collection (the Collection) is an annual collection of student residential addresses, and the names and addresses of parents/guardians of students.
Information is collected for eligible full-time or part-time primary and secondary students enrolled at most non-government schools across Australia.
The data that is collected is used to inform Commonwealth school education policy and funding. It helps to ensure funding arrangements for non-government schools are fair, transparent and based on need.
Collection data is used to calculate the school community’s capacity to contribute to the costs of schooling. Following a review of the existing socio-economic status (SES) score methodology by the National School Resourcing Board, the Government will put in place a new, improved methodology to calculate capacity to contribute. For more information about the review and the Government’s response, visit the education websites SES methodology page.
The revised capacity to contribute methodology, based on the income of parents or guardians of students at a non-government school, will be used in school funding calculations from 2020.
For more information about school funding arrangements, please see the Quality Schools fact sheets.
