GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
If person on short school holiday when interviewed, he or she is considered to be at school. However, if the person is on the holiday between two years of schooling, one cannot assume that he/she will continue schooling into the next year.
Variable can be created using either attendance or enrolment question (since typically just one of them is available in each survey). In the case that both questions were available, attendance question MUST be used.
This variable must ALWAYS have a note specifying which question (attendance/ enrolment) had been used to create it.
Does not include pre-school or kindergarten programs.
Value must be missing for others.
Does not require one to have completed any level.
Adults currently attending literacy programs are considered as attending school (PATSCH = 1)
In case the person is not currently attending school but there is no information on whether he attended school and left or never attended school use information from PEDUC to impute the right value.
