Description

We are planning to analyse some of the Understanding Society variables by highest educational or vocational qualification in waves 1 and 3.
• My understanding is that I should be using: c_hiqual_dv for wave 3 and a_hiqual_dv, and this should give me the following categories: degree; other higher degree; A-level; GSCE level; other qualification; no qualification. Or shall I use c_qfhigh_dv?
• I would like to know what qualifications are included in each category, please? I presume that c_hiqual_dv is derived from c_qfhigh_dv?
• Also, why is there missing variables in c_hiqual_dv and why is there even more missing variables (and not the same number of missing variables) in c_qfhigh_dv?
• I also understand that not all respondents were ever asked the highest educational qualification question, and I would like to know how I should be dealing with this in both waves? Still unclear to me after reading documentation on website.
