Description

Hi,

I can't find any information on what exactly 'other qualifications' consists of in your hiqual_dv variable (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/mainstage/dataset-documentation/variable/hiqual_dv)

Would you be able to provide a quick explanation or point me in the right direction?

Many thanks
