Religion - Antiochian Orthodox
Educational institution attending

28.3% of people with Antiochian Orthodox religious affiliation in New South Wales attended an educational institution in 2011.

The share of people attending educational institutions of amongst people of different religious beliefs reflects the age structure of the population, the year of migration and the reason for migration (where relevant) and proficiency in English. Communities with an older migrant population are likely to have low rates of educational attendance.

  • 'What type of educational institution is the person attending?'
