Almost one in eight (13.1%) Coordinators participated in the 2016 survey - half the response rate of the 2010 survey when one in four (26.4%) of Coordinators participated. The reasons for the decline in response is unknown. Differences between the respondents were found with regard to age and education. Participants in 2016 were an average of 4 years older than those in 2010, they were more likely to have a diploma or an associate diploma and less likely to have qualifications at Certificate III to IV. Neither of these findings are surprising as Coordinators in 2016 had been in the role longer than those in 2010. Almost all Coordinators at both surveys spoke English as their first language, however, there was an increase in the proportion with another first language which increased from 1.9% in 2010 to 5.1% in 2016.
