GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
All persons of pre-primary school age or above. Primary school age will vary by country. Value must be missing for others.
This is country-specific and depends on how school attendance is defined. Pre-school is included here. Also, in some countries, ever attended is yes only if the person attended for some minimum amount of time. The differences need to be carefully documented.
One is not required to have completed any level of education to answer this question positively.
