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 from the highest level of education attained, using the equivalent number of years for each grade.
“Elementary is the educational level for persons who successfully completed the sixth elementary grade. Those who successfully completed the ninth grade shall be classified under the preparatory level. Likewise, persons who successfully completed the general secondary certificate examination shall be classified under the secondary level (12 years of education). As for the rest of levels, they are as follows: Associate diploma, bachelor degree (BA/BS), higher diploma, masters degree (MA/MS), doctorate (Ph.D.)”
