GENERAL NOTES
----------------------
For persons presently attending school (PATSCH=1), value missing for others.
For secondary school, if not specified in the questionnaire, it is assumed that it is an academic secondary school.
For the surveys where is no distinction between university and post university they are considered as university
As with PEDUC, we recommend that PENROL be restructured as a categorical variable appropriate to the analysis.

COUNTRY SPECIFIC NOTES
----------------------------------
Generated using the highest level of education attained+1, therefore it is only generated for individuals aged 12+, i.e., if the highest level attained is primary for example, normally the individual should be attending in preparatory, except for postgraduates remained postgraduates since no higher levels could be attained and those who were illiterate and are currently students were recoded into “other” education together with those indicated “read and write” in the educational status. “Secondary” and “Intermediate college” graduates” were classified into “university” since no distinction between academic/vocational/technical secondary.
