Description

EDUCAR indicates the person's educational attainment in Argentina in terms of the level and grade of schooling completed.

Comparability — General

In 1993, an educational reform modified the 7-5 (primary and secondary) to a 9-3 structure (general basic education and multidisciplinary). In EDUCAR, we converted the new 9-3 system to the older system that prevailed before 1993. The detailed information prior to our recoding is available in the unharmonized source variables for 2001 and 2010. In 2006, a further reform substituted the 9-3 system and allowed educational jurisdictions to organize under either a 6-6 or a 7-5 structure (primary and secondary). Therefore, there are multiple educational systems reflected in the data for 2001 and 2010.

All samples indicate both the level of education with a year/grade and whether the level was completed. We assume that persons having finished 6+ years of primary schooling, 5+ years of secondary schooling, 4+ years of university study completed the corresponding education levels.

Most education levels have a category for zero years completed. These persons are coded to the highest grade of the level immediately lower than the one they reported. Persons with zero years of post-secondary completed are coded to 7+ years of secondary in every sample. In each sample, they are the majority of cases in that category. The 1980 and 2010 samples include some responses indicating grades higher than those expected based on the educational structure, which have been top-coded at the highest grade for the corresponding level.

The 1970 sample did not identify persons with only a preschool education. They are included with "never attended."

The 1970 and 1980 samples distinguish various kinds of technical secondary tracks not available in the later samples. Based on the frequency distributions, technical secondary education is interpreted as completion of this level with five or more years of the corresponding study.

The 1980 to 2010 samples distinguish between university and non-university post-secondary education. The non-university cases would have been classified with university in 1970. Based on the frequency distributions, non-university post-secondary education is interpreted as completion of this level with three or more years of the corresponding study.

The 2010 sample additionally identifies post-graduate studies and special education. The post-graduate cases would have been classified with university in previous samples. Based on the frequency distributions, post-graduate study is interpreted as completion of this level with two or more years of the corresponding study.

The data for 1991 and 2001 are calculated from separate questions for persons currently attending and those who attended in the past. Each census was taken during the school year, so we subtracted one grade from persons who were currently enrolled in school. In the 1991 sample, the persons attending grade 7+ of primary school, grade 7+ of secondary school or year 7+ of university are assumed to complete grade 6 of primary school, grade 6 of secondary school or 6 year of university, respectively.
