(i) Absentee rates for students in all schools are not available. The department monitors attendance data for government school students. Rolls are kept in hard copy in all government schools, primary, high schools and colleges. The reason for a student's absence is only entered into the MAZE database for high schools and colleges. Without the non government school data it is not possible to provide an absentee rate for all students.

The absence rate contained in the table below is for all government schools during the period 2001, 2002, 2003 and for term 1 2004. These figures are based on attendance data downloaded from MAZE.
