Notes
GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
The lower age cut-off at which information is collected will vary from country to country.
If no grade level information exists, this variable will be missing.
The variable does not take into account the actual number of years required to reach this level, in other words, first grade repeated three times still only counts as 1 year of schooling.
If a person has completed a BA/BSc, MA/MSc or PhD, but no number of years is known, use country specific information for the number of years.


COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------
Generated by ERF using the highest level of education attained and the highest completed in addition to the enrollment status
