NCEA: New Zealand's National Certificates of Educational Achievement (NCEA) are national qualifications for senior secondary school students.
School leavers are identified from the Ministry of Education's ENROL system, while highest school qualification is obtained from schools and the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
Data presented here is for school leavers with NCEA Level 3 and above (including University Entrance Award).
Ethnicity is multiple response, that is, students who affiliated in more than one ethnic group have been counted in each ethnic group. Students are only counted once in the total, therefore, the ethnic groups may not sum to the total.
