6302.0 - Average Weekly Earnings, Australia, May 2016

The Australian Bureau of Statistics' Average Weekly Earnings survey is designed to measure the level of average earnings in Australia at a point in time. Movements in average weekly earnings can be affected by changes in both the level of earnings per employee and in the composition of the labour force. Factors which can contribute to compositional change include variations in the proportion of full-time, part-time, casual and junior employees; variations in the occupational distribution within and across industries; and variations in the distribution of employment between industries. Life expectancy. Life expectancy is the most commonly used measure to describe population health and reflects the overall mortality level of a population.

Life expectancy

Life expectancy measures how long, on average, a person is expected to live based on current age and sex-specific death rates. In summarising mortality patterns, life expectancy is often expressed as the number of years of life a person born today is expected to live. Trends in life expectancy Life expectancy in Australia has improved dramatically for both sexes in the last century, particularly life expectancy at birth. Compared with their counterparts in 1881–1890, boys and girls born in 2011–2013 can expect to live around 33 and 34 years longer, respectively.

Figure 1: Life expectancy (years) at birth by sex, 1881–1890 to 2011–2013 Sources: ABS 2014a; ABS 2014b (Table S1). Life expectancy changes over the course of a person’s life because as they survive the periods of birth, childhood and adolescence, their chance of reaching older age increases. Physical education, school physical activity, school sports and academic performance.

Quasi-experimental and longitudinal studies It is not surprising that no randomized controlled trials were identified, as they are not practicable in this type of research setting.

Physical education, school physical activity, school sports and academic performance

Quasi-experimental protocols are usually indicated when causality cannot be tested by a random controlled trial in milieux such as the school setting. Seven quasi-experimental studies were identified (Table 1). Cross-sectional studies were also considered, as well as experimental or laboratory experiments on the determinants of academic performance (i.e. learning concentration, classroom behaviour, etc.). A second quasi-experimental study conducted in the Trois-Rivières region (Québec) between 1970 and 1977 involved 546 primary school students; this noted that students involved in an experimental 5 hours of physical education per week had a higher academic performance than their control counterparts who were enrolled in the normal school program for 40 min per week [8].

Overseas study in Vietnam Overseas education has become increasingly popular in recent years as it is viewed as offering the student likelihood of better future employment.

Education System in Vietnam

Overseas study can be either by scholarship or through personal finances. The overseas-study consulting market in Vietnam is highly competitive. Hundreds of education consulting centers and non-profit organizations are operating in the big cities. Moreover, the internet also gives students the ability to find the scholarships and the school and the opportunities to go oversea to study by themselves. Over 60,000 students in Vietnam are now studying overseas according to the Foreign Press Center and based on statistics from MOET.
