Research snapshots

The Research Snapshot series has been developed by the International Research and Analysis Unit to provide stakeholders with summary updates on current activities and developments in international education data and research. The Snapshots will be produced regularly, after relevant data are released.  The Department of Education, Skills and Employment has no control over the currency of data released by other agencies.  The intention of these Snapshots is to provide the most current data that are available in the public domain.
