Here is a summary of slides presented in late 2017 to Principals, Vice Principals, Business Managers and Marketers.
Data is sourced from the five yearly Census results, the annual ABS school census, My School, ABS Labour Market releases, Digital Finance Analytics and Education Geographics Research.
These slides show

- The state wide impact of the decline in manufacturing and mining jobs for each Education sector.
- Longer and shorter term impact on Independent school enrolments across increasing school fee ranges.
- Maps at SA4 Labour Force Region level showing spatial impact of the labour market changes since the GFC.
