Description

Dear Madam/Sir,

I'm really struggling to make sense of the categories of qfhigh_dv variable. Under which category can I find the vocational levels 2 and 3 qualifications, such as NVQs and Btechs levels 2 and 3? Or have they simply been included in the "None of the above" category?

It is really regrettable that the CASMIN categorisation of highest qualification was discontinued in Understanding Society. This BHPS derived variable offered a much clearer categorisation of highest qualification achieved.

Kind regards,
Jan Germen Janmaat
