BHPS - isced variable
I aim to create ISCED (education) variable for Understanding Society to use together with the BHPS ISCED variable.
When I look into BHPS ISCED and qfedhi (highest educational qualifications) and qfachi (highest academic qualification) crosstabs, I see some inconsistencies in ISCED. For example 18 cases who have 1st degree according to qfachi, have primary school diploma according to ISCED. Moreover 124 of tem have lower secondary diploma. Do you know if this is a data inconsistency, or there is a reasonable explanation for this?
I think it would be useful for me if you can tell how isced variable in BHPS is constructed (so I can create it in the same way in Understanding Society).

The code to derive ISCED on the BHPS is available online:
We hope this helps to construct the BHPS variable, to accompany what you have done for Understanding Society (as already discussed with my colleagues).
