Census of computers in schools

The census measures the computer-to-student ratio in schools and assists with equipment provisioning. It is held annually from the last school day of February.

Current ratio

The current computer-to-student ratio in Victorian government schools is:

  • 1:1.36 for primary schools
  • 1:0.91 for secondary schools.

This ratio is based on information provided by schools in the February 2017 census. The 2017 result includes both school and state funded computers, and 'bring your own' computers that are used by students. It does not include administration computers.
