Questions 11 to 19
These questions ask about the level of formal education of the population. They should be answered only by persons 3 years old or more.

Starting here, persons three years old or more answer the questions.


Question 18: What was the last grade or year that the person passed?

This is the highest grade or year passed by the person answer the Census who does not attend a recognized establishment in the formal educational system at the moment that the Census is completed, for a person who attended in the past.

In the case of persons who are attending the adult elementary school, you should mark the grade or year, and not the cycle. For this you will use the following table:

Type of studies / Cycle / Grade or year
Adult elementary school or center / 1, 2, 3 / 3, 5, 7


If the highest level that the person answering the Census attended was elementary and he/she is 45 years old or more, take into account the changes made in 1966 in the grade numbering, when first superior was eliminated and seventh was added. In any case, you will use the following conversion table:

Grade until 1966 / Equivalency in grades
Lower 1st grade / 1st
Upper 1st grade / 2nd
2nd grade / 3rd
4th grade / 5th
5th grade / 6th
6th grade / 7th


For example:
--Carlos completed elementary school to 5th grade before 1966. You will write 6th.

--Luisa responds that the last grade that she passed was Upper 1st grade. You will write 2nd.

--Luis attended through the second cycle of elementary in a school for adults. You will write: 5th.

This refers to the level of education that he/she attended or is currently attending.
If the person being interviewed attends or attended the level “Secondary”, mark this with an “X” and then ask if the elementary that he/she attended was for six or seven years, since in our country these two possibilities co-exist.


The definitions that are present below refer to the formal education of all of the persons. This means, the education whose structure and contents are organized sequentially in four level of education: Initial, General Basic Education or Elementary, Poli-modal or Secondary, and Higher (non university or post university). This excludes the attendance at: academies, private institutions that do not belong to the formal systems, and therefore do not accredit for continuation or to begin studies in formal education. For example: courses in foreign languages, information and computers, literacy courses, musical instruments and theater, for teacher courses to stay up-to-date, labor training, technical courses, and courses for hair dressing, dress making, mechanics, electricity, etc.


Current and past educational level: this is the educational stage that the person being enumerated is attending or attended.
Various educational structures coexist in the country, two of them have levels with the same names. These are the structures before the Federal Education Law and the one that results from the new National Education Law (2006). This last consists of two levels: Kindergarten and Pre-School/Initial, Elementary, Secondary, Terciary non-university and University and Post-Graduate (specialization, master’s or doctorate).
If the application of the new structure is found to be functioning, in many provinces the educational structure established by the Federal Educational Law is still governing, with its levels that are: Initial Education, EGB, Poli-modal, Terciary non-university and University and Post-Graduate (specialization, master’s or doctorate).

[82]

The levels of education that are presented in the question are:

-Initial (kindergarden, pre-school): this stage of the structure consists of the the children (boys and girls) who are from three to five years old.
- Elementary: stage after the initial level, of an obligatory nature and whose duration can be six or seven years (1st to 7th grade or 1st to 6th grade).
-EGB: period after initial level. Its duration is nine years and it is composed of three cycles of three years each, EGB 1 (1st to 3rd grade); EGB 2 (4th to 6th grade) and EGB 3 (7th to 9th grade).
-Secondary: level of education after elementary. It can be five or six years (1st to 5th year or 1st to 6th).
-Poli-modal: level of structure later than EGB. Its duration if three years.
- High non-university: this is a period of studies that are done in non-university terciary education, state or private with plans of study approved by the Ministry of Education (of the nation or of the provinces). It includes the professors of initial leve, for adults, special education and physical education, history, letters, etc. It also contains specialties that are not for teachers, for example: industrial technica specialization, journalism, tourism, computers, plastic arts and the formation of officials of the armed forces.
- University: level of studies that is carried out in the national, provincial, or private universities. It consists exclusively of the fields that give professional titles (lawyer, surveryor, audiologist, engineer, professor, etc.) and the baccalaureate degrees (in sciences of education, letters, mathematics, systems, etc.).
- Post-graduate (specialization, master’s or doctorate): stage of studies that includes the fields of specializations, master’s and doctorates or by private entities recognized by the Ministry of Education. For this type of study, it is a requirement to have a university degree with a grade.
- Special Education: this is the set of services, techniques, strategies, knowledge and pedagical resources within the National Educational System directing their attention to the persons with special educational needs.

Chapter F. The person's main characteristics

Population's educational characteristics
The population's educational characteristics researched in the population censuses are literacy, school attendance, and educational level starting at a certain age. In the census, educational data is collected from people who, at the time of the census, are at least four years old.

F2. Only for people at least 4 years old

37. Highest education level reached
This describes the educational level achieved by a person as of the date of the census. This question has two answers: one about level and one about the year or grade passed at that level. The census form breaks down the levels and grades into five groups:

- Old system, consisting of these levels: basic (with 5 years or grades), intermediate (with 3 years or grades) and middle (with 4 years or grades).
- Previous system, consisting of these levels: primary (with 8 years or grades) and secondary (with 4 years or grades).
- Current system, consisting of these levels: primary (with 6 years or grades) and secondary (with 6 years or grades).
- University, consisting of education after completing high school, at any public or private university.
[p. 17]
- Nonuniversity institution, consisting of other types of education. The first three groups capture information about formal schooling, in other words, the education that concludes with high school graduation.

The fourth group (university) captures information about higher education. If the academic terms are organized into semesters, keep the data uniform by noting down the years of studies that the person passed. For example:

- The person replies 2nd semester. Write 1.
- The person replies 5th semester. Write 2.

The fifth group (nonuniversity institution) captures information about education that does not necessarily occur in a university. This group includes the option technical institute, which refers to technical studies lasting at least one year. The option 'Other' refers to short courses (hairstyling, pastry-making, computing, etc.) lasting less than one year, and so whatever the answer, mark 0 in the year box. Only if the person responds with some nonuniversity institution level and grade, continue with question 38; otherwise, go to section F3. Only for people at least 7 years old.

Level of education

Column No. 12 - What education have you received in education centers? The enumerator should ask this question with reference to all persons 5 years old or older. The response should be written down in this column.

The annotation in the census form should indicate clearly and exactly the class of education received, for example: Primary, Secondary, Technical Industrial, Arts and Crafts, Complementary, Home for Farmers, Agricultural or Livestock, Elemental Nursing, Higher Nursing, Artistic Schooling, Elemental Religious, Higher Religious, Primary School Teacher, University, Military, Radio-technical, etc.

The generic name of secondary education should not be used since it means many types of teaching and obtaining the exact name of each one of them is what is important to the Censuses. For persons who did not receive any class of instruction in educational centers the expression none should be written down.

In no case should this important aspect be left without annotation.

Column No. 13 - What was the highest year that you passed in the education that you just indicated? The enumerator should write down the number that corresponds to the last year of study passed, for example: If a person is said to have passed as the last studied, the third year of Secondary school, the enumerator should write the number 3 in this column, in front of the word Secondary school that was written down in the immediately previous column (12).

Another example: If a person passed the first year of primary school, they should be registered in column 12 with the word Primary and in column 13 with the number 1 which corresponds to the year of education passed.

For persons who have not received any class of education in educational centers, they will be written down as zero (0).

For educational levels that are divided by semesters, make the annotation in complete years: two semesters equal one year.

For persons who take or have taken more classes of a career of superior education, the year of the highest passed level should be registered.

Take care to fill out this part C of Section V, only for persons who are 5 years old or older.


Question No. 40 Number of years of study passed

[Below the text is a form.]

Write in the box the last year of study passed. Take into account that the level (primary, bachelor, etc) is marked in the following question (No. 41). If a person has passed no year, write 0.

If they are taking university classes take into account that many careers are done by semesters and should be written down only in years passed; so, for example, if anyone is in their third semester of engineering school, they have passed a year of their career and consequently should be written down 1, not 3.

In some cases the information about education can be supplied in accordance with Decree 088 of 1976, which divides basic and medium education into 11 grades, equivalent to five of primary and six of secondary. In these cases use the table of conversions and write down the information according to old regulations. Example: If a person answers that the last year passed is 9 of basic education, write four of bachelor.

[p. 45]

6th grade = 1st Bachelor
7th grade = 2nd Bachelor
8th grade = 3rd Bachelor
9th grade = 4th Bachelor
10th grade = 5th Bachelor
11th grade = 6th Bachelor


In cases of persons who have done two university careers or who are doing post graduate work, all the years passed should be added up and the total should be written down.

Take into account that it concerns registering the number of years passed by a person, in the corresponding level and not the year that they are taking at the moment of the census.

If a person still has not passed any year of the respective level, write "00" in "number of years passed". For example, if currently a person is taking 1st of Secondary (or 6th grade), in question 34 you should have marked option 3 "secondary" and in question 35 you should write "0".

[p. 169]

Take into account that the interviewed person can respond in terms of grades (new nomenclature) or in years (old nomenclature); in the first case, you should make the conversion to years. For example, if they answer that they are taking 10th grade, you should mark "secondary" (question 34) and write "4" in "number of passed years" (question 35).

Remember that if in question 34 you marked options 4, 5 or 6, question 35 should remain unmarked.

Educational Characteristics

Ask these questions only to persons seven years old or older.

When filling about these lines it is convenient to consult the age (line 4), so that compatibility exists in the responses.

For Census purposes, "regular education" will be understood to be that which persons receive in primary school, secondary schools, and universities.

[p. 48]

Normal schools are considered university level.


Line No. 12.- Last grade or year completed

Like the previous question, this one should be asked only to persons 7 years old or older.
Write the number of the highest grade or year that a person has passed. In this question it is necessary to insist a little, since, generally, a person tends to say the grade or year that the person is in; while the last passed is what is to be known.

You should write down the number of the grade or year in the corresponding line agreeing with the level of education. If a person does not remember the information exactly, but knows they attended primary school, secondary school or university, write down a "d" (which means unknown in the respective line.

Many university students take subjects of different years, always write down the last year that they have completely passed.

In the case of university graduates, who although they are have not taken the exams to obtain their professional title, the last year passed should always be written down. If a person has a university degree (medical, law, or economy, etc.), write a "G" (which means graduated) in the line that says "University".

When a person has not passed any grade, mark the box that has this name (No Grade); this box should be marked for two groups of persons, namely:

1) Those being 7 or more years old, never have attended school.

2) Children or any other person who is taking first grade in primary education.

Second block of questions: only for persons 5 years old or older

As was said when beginning this thematic division, the second block of the population questionnaire is formed by questions 7, 8 and 9.

All of these questions are applied only to members of the household who are 5 years old or older. If a person that you enumerate is less than 5 years old, you should cross out the whole block with two diagonally crossed lines and marked in such a manner that it crosses from corner to corner the whole block, continuing to fill out the population form corresponding to the following person.


Question 9: Educational level

The level of instruction of a person corresponds to the highest passed year of study within the highest education cycle that has been studied in the regular system of education.

[Below the text is a form.]

It is advisable that you ask the question as it is asked in the form, but you can add a "that is to say" or a "that is" and continue the question according to the case. What is the last year or grade that you took in school, secondary school or the university?

You should find out what was the last year or grade that they really passed and not what they are taking in school, secondary school or the university. If the person tells you none, then simply mark the circle preceded by the words "No grade". If they tell you the first grade of school or the second or the third, etc. then you should mark with an X the circle that follows the word "Primary" and write down the number 1, 2, 3, etc. in the open little box that follows. As you know here you should only write down up to the number 6, since primary school only goes to the sixth grade. In the case of "Secondary or middle education", the number of years up to 5 or 6 and in "University" it can go up to 9 years. In each situation you should always mark with an X the corresponding circle and then the number of the year passed. If the highest level is "equivalence" (bachillerato por madurez), "25" is written down.

In a similar manner certificates of primary education are written down.

The equivalence in the current system of education is the following:

[p. 51]

Preschool.
Primary:


I Cycle: First, second and third grade.
II Cycle: Fourth, fifth and sixth grade.


Secondary:


III Cycle: First, second and third year.
IV Cycle or diversified education: Forth, fifth and sixth year.


Cycles I, II and III constitute "General Basic Education".

Question 11: Level of Instruction

This question has as its objective capturing the level of advanced schooling by the population as an indicator of the social development of the country and of the grade or quality of its human resources.

[To the right of the text is a form.]

As the question indicates, you are interested in knowing the last grade or year passed and not that which they are currently enrolled in. Keep in mind that the category "kindergarten or preparatory" refer only to having passed the year of preschool immediately before the first grade of primary education; Of this form, if the boy or girl is attending kindergarten, even if they have fulfilled many years of preschool education, you should mark with "X" in "No grade".

[Below the text is a picture of two schoolchildren.]

If the enumerated person responds "No grade" or "Preparatory or Kindergarten" only mark with "X" the corresponding circles. If a person only passed years of special education, in which one does not advance in grades like those of common school, mark circle 0 of "No grade".

[p. 65]

In the remaining options you should indicate with "X" the corresponding category, and also write down the last year passed.

[Below the text is a picture of a student.]

For primary the numbers possible that you will be able to write down go from 1 to 6 (first to sixth grade); in secondary the maximum written number for you will be 5 for middle academic education and 6 for technical. In associate degree the highest number written down for you should be 3, and 9 for university education.

If the interviewed person does not know completely the last year passed by the enumerated person, you should mark, at least, the circle that corresponds to the level.

Section IV. Personal Data.

For persons 6 years and older (end of interview for those under this age)

Question 11. What is the highest grade or level of education passed?
This question refers to the highest grade or year of studies that the interviewee passed in the most advanced educational cycle they participated in through the National Education System, or abroad (if these are special studies abroad, request their equivalencies within the National System; if they do not know, write down in detail what they state).
To correctly ask this question it is necessary to know the different educational levels, as well as the school grades that each one includes, so it is necessary that you carefully read the contents of each educational level that are detailed below, attempting to memorize them with the goal of being able to correctly fill out the educational details of the population.
Elementary: The first level of education, whose primary function is providing the first elements of education that will allow students to move on to Secondary Education. From 1st to 6th Grade of General Education, and from the 1st to 4th semester (levels 11, 12, 21, and 22) of Basic Adult Education (EOC), includes the first level of art schools, sports initiation and special education (for children, adolescents and adults with mental or physical disabilities). See the conversion table in Annex 2 of this manual.
Basic Secondary: Includes the second level of education (middle basic), in which students acquire general knowledge to continue their pre-university or polytechnic studies. Completion of primary education is required for entry.
Currently students complete from 7th to 9th grade, although there were years that continued until 10th grade. There may also be cases where the interviewee states they have completed from the 1st to 4th semester (evening courses) and the 1st to 6th semester (distance learning) of Secondary Adult Education (SOC), in which case you must search for the equivalency for those semesters in relation to Basic Secondary in Annex 2 of this manual.
This includes the second level of art school, sports initiation and special education (for adolescents and adults with mental or physical disabilities).
If the person states that they have passed preparatory to enter Baccalaureate (1st or 2nd year), that would correspond to the 7th or 8th grade of Basic Secondary, as indicated in Annex 2. Likewise, if they indicate that they have completed the 1st year of Baccalaureate, that will be considered equivalent to the 9th grade of Basic Secondary as shown in Annex 2.
Qualified Worker: Corresponds to the second level of education (mid basic) for workers; its purpose is to prepare students specifically for a determined profession (non-teaching). This includes classes taught by other Bodies not specialized in education, so long as they are approved by the Ministry of Education.
This level includes Trade Schools which were initially conceived solely for youths with scholastic setbacks and today is made up of qualified workers. The corresponding equivalences between the semesters of these schools and their conversion to years of Qualified Workers are listed in Annex 2.

[p. 53]

Pre-university: Also corresponds to the second level of education (upper mid) and intends to provide the necessary knowledge to continue higher education or university studies whose entrance requires passing Basic Secondary Education.
Currently students complete from 10th to 12th grade, although there were years that continued until 13th grade. It may also be that they state that they have completed the 2nd to 6th semesters of the regular course in Higher Adult Education (FOC) or the 4th through 8th semesters of the distance learning courses through the FOC, in which case the equivalency in Pre-University years can be found in Annex 2.
If the person states that they have completed from the 2nd to 5th year of Baccalaureate, find the equivalency in Pre-University years using the table in Annex 2.
Intermediate Technical: Corresponds to the second level of education (upper middle) and is intended to prepare the student for a non-teaching trade or profession. It is taught in day courses or for workers. This includes classes taught by other Organisms not specialized in education, so long as they are approved by the Ministry of Education. It is completed over years and a degree is obtained.
Intermediate Pedagogy: It comprises the second level of education (upper middle) and is responsible for preparing teachers, primarily at the elementary level. These include elementary teachers, kindergarten teachers, teacher's aides, and physical education/sports teachers and coaches. Currently these types of studies are not taught at this level or at the beginner's level.
Higher Education or University: This comprises the third level of education, entrance to which requires successful completion of Upper Middle Education. It prepares highly qualified specialists, including teaching personnel. This includes taught courses or free learning which, although it is not completed on a yearly schedule, corresponds to this level.
In the case of interviewees who are studying at the Higher or University level in taught courses or free learning courses that are taken in cycles, that is, they are not taken in years, these will be made equivalent to the years of study. Therefore, if the interviewee reports that he is in the third cycle, he will be considered to be in the third year of University or Higher Education studies.
The question relates to any level of education in the National Education System, regardless of the date the course or school year was completed.
[Figure omitted]

[p. 54]

The following discusses how this question should be filled out. The question is asked as follows: "What is the highest grade or year of study which you passed?" Inform them that this includes those in the National Education System or those completed abroad. If there are any doubts, it may help to name the different educational levels that make up the question, as well as the years or grades that they encompass.
After receiving the information you will write down the grade or year passed in the corresponding educational level.
Note that at each educational level the grades or years they contain are listed, you only have to write down the grade or year.
When you are told a year or grade greater than those that appear in the corresponding level, note the last that appears in each level.
Zero ("0") will be marked in the "None" box when a person states that they have not completed any grades, and you will proceed directly to question 15.
Note that the different educational levels are arranged from lowest to highest rating or importance. For a person with completed grades at different levels, only the highest level will be counted.

62. Question 12.Last academic year completed. The last academic year fully completed by the person at the time of enumeration is recorded in this space. If the person is registered in a school and studying, for example, the fourth grade, the "last academic year completed" is the third. Similarly, if a person has not completed one or more classes in any year, the "last academic year completed" is the year immediately preceding the current academic year.

p. 27

This question refers to the regular education that the enumerated person could have received or is receiving in a normal elementary, secondary school, or University. Therefore, education from schools with different purposes is not considered. E.g. fine arts schools, home economics schools, arts and crafts schools, industrial schools, commercial schools, etc.

The annotation that should be recorded in this space is defined below according to the different types of education or schools.

a) "In primary [elementary] schools". The following annotation is made for a person who is attending or who had attended a primary school and who declares that the "last academic year completed" is one of the 8 grades making up primary education:

1 - P
2 - P
3 - P
4 - P
5 - P
6 - P
7 - P
8 - P


b) "In secondary school". The following annotation is made for a person who declares that their "last academic year completed" is one of the 4 grades that comprise secondary education:

1 - S
2 - S
3 - S
4 - S


c) "University education". The following annotation is made if the enumerated person attends the University or has, previous to the census date, carried out professional studies in any of its faculties, corresponding to the "last academic year completed":
p. 28
1 - U
2 - U
3 - U etc.

The grade equivalent to the Dominican system is recorded for foreigners or for those who have received their education abroad.

The word "None" is recorded for those who do not know how to read or write, or for those who have attended school but who have not completed any academic year.

Some persons, principally those who are advanced in age, will claim to know how to read and write but will not be able to specify the last academic year completed because they did not receive a regular or systematic education according to the current educational programs. In these cases, the grade in primary school that the enumerator considers would correspond to the person, after investigating the type of knowledge acquired by the enumerated person, is recorded.

Question 37. What is the highest level of school [the respondent] has attended: preschool, primary/basic, secondary/high school, university?
The level of education refers to, "each stage of the educational system that is determined by the cognitive, emotional, and physical development of students as well as their social needs" (Art. 31, Section (a), of the Law of General Education 66-97, of the Dominican Republic). This question is aimed inasmuch as people who currently attend an academic institution as those who attended in the past.

Chart 1 shows the structure of the education system in the Dominican Republic, exhibiting the years of study, according to the level:
Preschool or Early Childhood Learning- Three years long

  • Early Childhood Learning is the first level of education and occurs before Basic or Primary Education is set up with the family and community. It targets the population of infants and young children 5 years of age or less. The final year is obligatory for children who are 5 years old.

Primary or Basic Level if Education- Eight years long

  • The first set, that lasts 4 years, includes grades 1st through 4th. This level usually begins when the child is 6 years old, and never younger than 5 years old.
  • The second set, lasts four years and includes 5th through 8th grade.

Secondary or High School- Four years long

  • The first set of grades in Secondary school is the same for all students.
  • The second set of Secondary or preparatory set is made up of three areas: General, Technical/Professional, and the Arts, in which students who complete it, will receive a diploma or degree in the area studied.

College or University- Approximately five years long

  • Universities consist of departments offering majors or "careers" that generally take between 3 and 5 years to complete depending on the specific course of study. The exception is medicine, which can take up to 7 years to complete.
  • In order to record the year in school as given by the informant, be aware that: 2 semesters equal one year, 3 trimesters equal one year, and 4 quarters are equivalent to one year.

Postgraduate Studies- Approximately five years long

  • This level of studies corresponds to the specific degree obtained by the student during their university studies, and the degree levels are called Master's, or Doctorate. Typically, a Master's degree takes about 2 years to complete, and the Doctorate is the next degree level obtained immediately following the Master's and generally takes 2 more years to complete.
Question 38. What is the highest level of education [the respondent] has completed?
This question inquires about the last year of school completed by the person being surveyed in the highest level of education that he/she is studying or has studied. It is important to remember that this means the actual years of school completed, therefore the level he/she is currently attending or any incomplete levels he/she attended do not count.
Record in the corresponding boxes the last level of school the person completed and then skip to question 42.
In order to illustrate how to record the last level of school [the respondent] has completed, see the following examples:

Example 1: If the interviewee was in the first level of secondary or high school, but did not completed it, then in question 37 you should record code 3 and in question 38 you should record 0.

Example 2: If the interviewee completed the third level of secondary or high school, but continued studying, then in question 37 record code 3 and then in question 38 you should record 3.

Example 3: If the interviewee is currently in second grade of primary or basic school, then in question 37 you should record code 2 and then in question 38 you should record 1.

Example 4: If the interviewee states that the person being surveyed is in first level of primary or basic school, then in question 37 you should record code 2 and then in question 38 you should record 0.
Example 5: If the interviewee states that the person being surveyed is currently in the first level of secondary or high school, then in question 37 you should record code 3 and in question 38 you should record 0.

Question No. 12

[The following directions refer to a graphic representing question 12, "what is the last grade or highest year that you passed in primary, secondary, or post-secondary instruction?", in this section of the enumeration form.]

On the dotted line and for the appropriate level, record the grade or year that the person being enumerated reports to be the highest of those passed. For example, if the person reports 3rd [year] of primary, record: "1. Primary . . .3." [This is an example of what enumeration form should look like after being filled in.] Remember that the grade or year being researched refers only to that which was passed as part of one of the three levels of regular instruction that are imparted in schools, high schools, and public or private universities (primary, secondary, university). Therefore cooking, sewing, and telegraphy courses and short courses in stenography and typing are not considered courses of regular instruction.

[Note that this question corresponds to question 11 on the enumeration form and that both the question and response choices on the enumeration form add "literacy center" to the list of educational establishments.]

Question 13.- What is the highest level of instruction that you are attending or attended?

[There is a picture of question 13 from this section of the enumeration form.]

Mark the box that corresponds to the highest level of education the person being interviewed is attending or attended. Keep in mind that being investigated is the level of studies according to the traditional system or the current system, which refers to the curricular reform and which is being applied in some educational establishments.

You should mark none if the person being interviewed never attended any formal educational center. In that case, move on to question 16 and continue with the interview.


Question 14.- What is the last grade, course, or highest year that you passed at the level that you indicated?

[There is a picture of question 14 from this section of the enumeration form.]

Mark the box of the highest grade, course, or year that the person passed at the level they indicated in question 13 (what is the highest level of instruction that you are attending or attended?). Remember that, generally, the informant will state the grade or year that they are in; what we want to know is the last year that they passed. For example: If they are in the first year of basic, mark box 00. If they are in the fourth year at the university, mark box 3.

[There is a drawing of a man holding up 3 fingers, and box 3 for this question on the enumeration form is checked.]

If the system of studies in the university is by semesters, two correspond to one year. In contrast, for those who passed or are studying in a literacy center, one level equals two years of primary. Example:

[p. 46]

If the person states that they passed the third level at a literacy center, you should mark box number 06.

For people who are in the first year of any level, mark box 00.

This part just refers to people five years of age and up, as a result the interview ends with question 9b for persons younger than 5, skipping the questions 10 through 13 to the following page.


12a. Level of schooling
What is the highest level of formal education attained?

In this question the different levels of schooling offered through the formal education system are presented, where each person must be located by level according to the information given, taking into account that they have at least passed one year within the said level according to the following list:

Preschool: Preschool, kindergarten, and nursery school.

Primary or basic: First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth grade, the last three corresponding to the first, second and third courses of the "basic plan" of the previous system.

Vocational course after sixth grade [carrera corta]: In this case these short degrees that were done only [after] having passed sixth grade will be counted, such as: bookkeeper, office technician, industrial basic plan and other vocational studies.

Middle education [secondary school]: This level includes all people who study or have studied in an current diversified two year bachelor's degree (high school diploma) and in the old two year bachelor's degree (high school diploma) in sciences and letters; also, accountants, primary teachers, commercial secretaries, expert agronomists, nurses and other courses of studies that require passing the basic plan.

Higher education (not university): In this level people are grouped together who studied or are studying in institutions that require or required a bachelor's degree (or teacher) [i.e. high school diploma], such as: technological institutes, national agronomy school, San Jose de la Montaña seminary, military school, teacher training school, school of social work, others.


[pg. 47]

Technical university: This refers to the majors that are offered by the universities such as: teaching, nursing, technicians in diverse areas.

University: These are those that studied or are studying in one of the universities for the purpose of an academic title, such as: doctor, engineer, economist, odontologist, etc.

Unknown: These are those people who have made some course of study, but by not being present, or for reasons of age were not able to report their level.


12b. Years passed
What is the last year passed at this level?

In this question nursery school will be recorded as "00" (zero zero) and year passed will be recorded starting with first grade of the regular teaching system.
For upper level education both in and outside of the university, in which courses of study follow cycles and each year includes two cycles, the year exact year will be written down carefully. To facilitate the answer, the year passed will be noted in numbers.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Column 30 - Highest Grade Completed

Each household member aged five years and over will be first asked if he/she can read and write. A person is said to be able to read and write if he/she can read and understand and also write in any language. People can read and write only their names and numbers are not considered as having educational qualification. Also those who can read only scripture- related and memorized texts are not taken as having been educated.

If the person does not read and write, the term "illiterate" will be entered in column 30 and "00" in card columns 55 and 56. However if the household member is able to read and write, he/she will be asked the highest grade he/she completed and then the correct code for the response among those in the list will be registered in the space provided in column 30 in line with the household member and this same code will be entered in card columns 55 and 56.

Highest grade completed refers to the highest educational grade individuals are currently attending or the highest grade level they completed in the past under the available curriculum in regular schools, universities, training institutes and the like.

The highest grade the household member completed will be registered in the space provided corresponding to the household member in column 30. Then the correct code among those listed below will be identified and entered in card columns 55 and 56.

00 = Illiterate. This includes those currently enrolled but not yet able to read and write and those who have attended in the past and discontinued attending before knowing to read and write and those who have forgotten to read and write .Also those who have never attended are included here.
01 = Completed first grade and able to read and write.
02 = Completed second grade and able to read and write. Those qualified to read and write under literacy program are considered as having completed second grade.
03 = Completed third grade and able to read and write.
04 = Completed fourth grade.
05 = Completed fifth grade.
06 = Completed sixth grade.
07 = Completed seventh grade.
08 = Completed eighth grade.
09 = Completed ninth grade.
10 = Completed tenth grade.
11 = Completed eleventh grade.
12 = Completed twelfth grade.
20 = Completed education of one year or more in a program above 12th grade offered in schools, institutes, colleges or universities, that is not intended to qualify with first degree /BA. BSC/.
21 = Completed education of one year or more in a program above 12th grade offered in colleges or universities, that is intended to qualify with first degree /BA. BSC/ but not yet awarded with degree.
22 = Completed education with first degree /BA, BSC, LLB/ and having similar qualification.
23 = Completed a one year or more of education above first degree in graduate program in university with but not awarded with MA, MSC, LLM.
24 = Completed education with master's degree /MA, MSC, LLM/ and having equivalent qualification.
25 = Completed education with doctorate degree or equivalent qualification.
26 = Able to read and write but their qualification cannot be classified according to the standard educational classification. For example, priests, monks, other members of the clergy, sheiks, etc. who have attended schools in churches, monasteries and mosques and in others and learned how to read and write come under this category with regard to the highest grade completed. Those who could read and write by learning on their own with the help from others prior to completing first grade come under this category. This includes those attending literacy program and who can read and write.

To determine the highest grade completed for a person who has attended or still attending other than regular school and university the number of academic years completed in the institution or equivalent level is added on the grade or level completed in regular school. For example, if some years ago the requirement for entrance to a nursing school was to complete eighth grade in regular education, and the course in the nursing school takes three years to complete the professional training then grade completed will be calculated as: 8 + 3 = 11. Hence 11 will be entered in card columns 55 and 56.

But if the requirement for admission to a nursing school was completion of 11tth grade from regular schools, then the situation has to be treated differently. One who completes a three-year nursing training without any repetition and having no further regular education is said to have completed 14, i.e. /11 + 3/. For people who have attended or currently attending evening schools, teachers training institutes, commercial, technical, telecommunications, etc. schools or institutes, their highest grade completed will have to be determined in the same way.

One thing worth noting here is that the highest grade completed for a person who has studied in different educational institutions will be the highest grade among these. For example, let us assume a nurse completed 11th grade in regular school and also 3 years training in nursing school and later completed 12th grade in evening school and further pursued her education in the university extension program for three years. The highest grade this person completed is: First) grade completed in regular school (11) plus years completed in nursing institute (3) equals 14. On the other hand if she has completed 11th grade in regular school and completed 12th grade in extension session of regular school and further completed 3rd year education in a university, then the highest grade she completed will be 15 /11 + 1 + 3/. If she completed a three year education above 12th grade under a program unintended to obtain degree, code "20" will be entered in card columns 55 and 56 or code "21" will be entered in the card columns under a program intended to obtain a degree.

As can be understood from the second example above, the standard of some vocational training institutes does not match with that in regular schools and universities. And this does not have to create any confusion because the required data is highest grade completed not the school or institute standard people have attended or are still attending.

The level of educational attainment or highest grade the person has completed refers to the highest grade level he/she has completed within the most advanced level attended in the educational system either in the new or the former educational system of the country where the education was received. For example, a person who is found to be attending in grade 7 at the time of enumeration is considered to have completed grade 6 in question 20. Therefore, codes 7 and 6 will be assigned to the individual on questions 19 and 20 respectively. However the person may not attend at the time of the census but reported to have taken exam in grade 8 and passed, under this circumstance the person is considered as the one who completed grade 8.

For the purpose of enabling the enumerators to assign and mark the necessary codes to the information obtained, the list of level of grades which the respondents has completed at the time of census with their corresponding list of codes are given below.

7. Full-time education.

The questions on full-time education are strictly limited, to persons aged five years and over. They refer to full-time education in an educational institution like primary, middle, secondary, commercial or technical school, teacher training college, university or similar type of school where a person spends or has spent at least four hours a day receiving general education in which the emphasis is not on vocational or trade training.

This definition excludes private tuition, correspondence courses, night schools, trade schools such as flair catering, motor driving schools, vocational training schools, etc. It also excludes on-the-job training establishments like productivity institute, auditor-general's training school, agricultural training school, forestry training school, textile training school, draughtsmanship school, military academy, police training school, survey school, labour college, etc. It also excludes ungraded schools like nurseries and the Arabic schools where nothing but the reading and writing of the Koran is taught. This does not mean that schools where Arabic is taught should automatically be excluded because there are recognized schools where Arabic and other subjects are taught.

1a. Have you attended or are you attending school now?

Three boxes marked never, past, now, are provided for this question and you should mark a cross in only one of them.

(a) Never- Mark a cross in this box if the person has never at any time received full-time education.
(b) Past- Mark a cross in this box if the person received full-time education in the past and is no longer receiving it.
(c) Now- Mark a cross in this box if the person is still receiving full-time education at the time of the Census.

1b. If now or past in 7a what is the highest grade (or year) attained in the regular school attended?

Boxes have been provided for recording the grade attained in the highest type of school attended by the respondent. You should therefore write in only one box for each respondent.

For a child in kindergarten write "1" in the box provided for kindergarten.

pg. 51

The following conversion table will help you to write the appropriate number in the box for respondents who attended the former "elementary" school and the comparatively new school system and reached a particular grade.

Note that the conversion should be done in terms of the "present system" [table].

[Column headings:]

If the respondent completed middle form 4, you should write 4 in the box provided for middle. Likewise if the respondent completed continuation 1, you should write 3 in the box for middle. Similarly for a respondent who finished secondary form 5, you must write 5 in the box for secondary. For a respondent in upper sixth form in a secondary school you should write 6 in the box for secondary. It is important that you write out the figures clearly and boldly.

The dotted line marked "other specify" has been provided for recording the other types of school which do not fall into the categories above.

These include the following:

(a) Universities
(b) Teacher training colleges
(c) Commercial and technical schools
(d) Junior secondary schools

For teacher training colleges you should distinguish between the following types:

1. Cert. B
2. Cert. A (post middle)
3. Cert. A (post B)
4. Cert. A (post-secondary)
5. Specialist training college
6. Advanced teacher training, etc.

P12: Educational characteristics: Ask all persons 3 years or older


P12a School attendance: Has (name) ever attended/attending school now?

This question refers to full time education in an educational institution such as, nursery, kindergarten (pre-school), primary, middle, junior secondary, secondary, vocational, commercial or technical, senior secondary, teacher training college, university or similar type of school where a person spends or has spent at least four (4) hours a day receiving general education in which the emphasis is not on vocational skill or trade training.

This definition excludes night schools, trade schools such as flair catering, motor driving schools, adult literacy school, etc. It also excludes on-the-job training establishments like National Productivity Institute, Auditor-General's Training School, Accountant-General Training School, Labour College, Commercial Bank Training School, etc. It excludes Arabic schools where only reading and writing of the Quoran are taught. This does not mean that schools where Arabic is taught must automatically be excluded because there are recognised schools where Arabic and other subjects are taught.

Three Options: never, now, past are provided for this question and you must write and mark only one of them:

a. Never - Write and mark X for box 1, if the person has never at any time received full-time education. If you mark never i.e. box 1 then skip to P13 without asking P12b and P12c.
b. Now - Write and mark box 2, if the person is still receiving full-time education at the time of the Census. It includes those who are on vacation at the time of the Census and would be going back to school.
c. Past - Write and mark box 3, if the person received full-time education in the past and is no longer receiving it.


P12b If now or past in 12a: What is the highest level of schooling (name) attending/attended?

This question seeks to elicit information on the highest level of formal schooling attended/attending. Seven levels have been identified. They are (i) Pre-school, (ii) Primary (iii) Middle/JSS (iv) Secondary/SSS (v) Vocational/Technical/Commercial (vi) Post Secondary (Agric/Nursing/Teacher Training) and (vii) Tertiary (e.g. Polytechnic or University). If the person or respondent dropped out of school at a level it means he/she had not completed that level but has attended that level. Note that the interest here is to find the highest level ever attended or attending and not completed, mark the appropriate box applicable to the person.

In some cases you will come across people who through correspondence, distant or adult education have attained some level of schooling. In such cases find the equivalent level of schooling and write and mark the appropriate box.

P12c What is the highest grade (name) completed at that level?

The highest grade completed, is the last full class, form or year completed and not the present/current one being attended. For example if the person is now in primary class five (5), then the highest grade (class) completed will be Primary four (4) since he/she has not yet completed Primary five (5). Similarly, a child who is currently or who dropped out during the second term in JSS 1, will have "0" (Zero) recorded, because no grade has been completed at that level. Record the equivalent grade for persons who have attained some level of schooling through distant, correspondence or adult education. Thus if the grade is unobtainable, the equivalence of the number of years devoted to that particular type of school will provide the required information.

[p. 41]

An example of how to complete P12b and P12c: If a child is currently in the third year of primary school then mark an X for code "2" in P12b and write 2 and mark in the box at P12c.

P12b. If now or past in 12a: What is the highest level of school (name) is attending now/attended in the past?

This question seeks to elicit information on the highest level of formal school respondent attended or is attending. 12 levels have been identified and they are:

01 Nursery
02 Kindergarten
03 Primary
04 JSS/JHS
05 Middle
06 SSS/SHS
07 Secondary
08 Vocational/technical/commercial
09 Post middle/secondary certificate (teacher training, college of education, agric., nursing, midwifery, other certificate, etc.),
10 Post secondary diploma [tertiary (university diploma, teacher training, HND, etc.)]
11 Bachelor degree
12 Post-graduate or higher (higher means post graduate diploma, master's degree, Ph.D.).

Note that the interest here is to find the highest level of formal school respondent ever attended or attending and not completed. If a respondent dropped out of school at a level it means he/she has attended that level. Also note that first degree includes undergraduates who are still in the universities and polytechnics and those who attended university but dropped out before completing the bachelor degree in addition to those who have completed their bachelor degree.

Similarly, the post graduate category includes those who have completed post graduate diploma, masters' degree and Ph.D. It also includes those who are currently doing a postgraduate course and those who started post graduate course but dropped out before completion.

Enter the code applicable to the person.

You will also come across people who through distant, sandwich course or adult education have attained some level of schooling. In such cases, find the equivalent level of schooling and record the appropriate code in the box provided.

P12c. What is the highest grade [class/form/year] (name) has completed at that level of schooling?

The highest grade completed, is the last full class, form or year completed and not the present/current one being attended. For example if the person is now in primary class five (5), then the highest grade (class) completed will be primary four (4) since he/she has not yet completed primary five (5). Similarly, a child who is currently in JHS 1 or who dropped out during the second term in JHS 1, will have "0" (Zero) recorded, because no grade has been completed at that level. Record the equivalent grade for persons who have attained some level of schooling through distant, correspondence or adult education. If the grade is unobtainable, the equivalence of the number of years devoted to that particular type of school will provide the required information. Below is an example of how to complete P12b and P12c. If a child is currently in the third year of primary school then enter code "03" in P12b. In P12c, write 2 in the appropriate box.

Educational and occupational characteristics

These questions should be asked exclusively of the persons who have informed that they are seven years old or older.

Question 18: Educational level

In the spaces that correspond to this question, the enumerator should note with clarity, the highest grade or year that the person has completed in formal education. In this question, it is necessary to insist a bit, since generally, the informant tends to say the grade or year that he or she is attending, but what we want to know is the last grade that he or she passed. For this reason, this question should be asked to all persons, whatever the answer was to question 17. For person younger than seven years old, you should mark with an X across the box.

For those who inform not having passed any educational grade, you should write an X on the first line of this question ("no grade"), the same as for those who have passed any grade of preschool, since the question is oriented to the primary, secondary, or university levels.

The enumerator should write the grade or year on the corresponding line, according to the educational level. In this way, a person who has passed through the fifth year of elementary should have noted 5th elementary, the person who has passed 3rd year of pre-vocational should note 3rd Secondary, etc.

Be aware that under the term secondary we include the pre-vocational cycle (or general education) and the vocational cycle (or diversified), taking the first year of this last cycle as the 4th year of secondary, since the cycle of general education is comprised of three years.

If the education that is being studied is divided by semesters, you should note the highest year that the person has completed. For example, if the person passed the 5th semester of Civil Engineering, it would correspond to 2nd year of University.

For the persons who studied abroad, you should note with the best approximation, the grade that corresponds to the Guatemalan educational system, asking additional questions to the interviewee.

For persons who studied in Guatemala before the current educational systems were put into place at the several levels, you should note the highest grade that they passed according to the past systems. In this case, you should ask the enumerated persons additional questions to achieve the most accurate notation possible.

If the person does not remember the last grade passed, but does remember the level (elementary, secondary, or university), note a "d" (initial for unknown) on the respective line. For example, for a person who informs that he or she attended some years of secondary education, but cannot remember the last grade passed, you will write "of secondary". If the person does not remember even the grade nor educational level, in large letters that cover the box, write "unknown."

[p. 45]

Many college students take classes that correspond to different years; you should always write the last year that he or she has completed.

In the case of college students who finished classes but have not taken the exams to receive their college degree, you should note the last grade passed. The same will be applied in the case of professionals who have graduated from the university.

In the case of persons who have studied two fields of secondary or university studies, you should note the highest grade that corresponds to the field with the highest number of years.

As in the case of questions 16 and 17, this question refers exclusively to the formal education that is obtained in public and private institutions, schools, private education at home and college, excluding the long-distance learning and courses that are received in isolated form.

C) Cultural characteristics (for persons aged seven years or older)

Questions 11-14 refer to the literacy and educational level of the enumerated person; either he or she completed the degree or is currently studying. For this reason, only persons aged seven and older are asked these questions.

The purpose of these questions is to find out the educational level of the population with respect to their demographic, economic, and social characteristics.

Question 12: level of education

1. How to ask the question:

[p. 71]

Ask, "What was the last grade or year in primary or secondary school, or higher education, which you successfully completed?"

Note that two pieces of information are required here: a) the highest level of education; and b) the last year successfully completed at that level.

The normal educational system in Guatemala has several levels: a) primary; b) secondary; c) and higher education.

The following definitions will help you categorize the population correctly according to the above.

Primary education: this education is intended to provide the basic elements of instruction (grades 1-6).

Secondary education: the purpose of this level is to provide general, or specialized, or both, types of education. The minimum requirement for students is to be admitted is completion of primary education. This level of education is currently divided into basic and vocational instruction.

Higher education: this is instruction provided in universities and higher-level technical institutions. The minimum requirement for students to be admitted is completion of secondary education.

2. How to record the answer:
The form has various boxes for recording the answer given by the interviewee:

The 00 box, "none," is for the population, which has not completed any schooling.

The spaces appearing after the various levels of instruction, such as "primary 1 _ _," "secondary 2 _ _," and "higher level 3 _ _," are for recording the highest year or grade completed.

Use the 99 box, "unknown," for those persons for whom the informant is unable to provide the information.

[p. 72]

C. Third block: educational characteristics (for those 7 years of age and older).

Questions 13 to 15 refer to the enumerated person's literacy and education completed or education being carried out. For this reason, only those persons 7 years of age and older are asked these questions.

The purpose of these questions is to discover the educational level of the population in relation to demographic, economic, and social characteristics.


Question 14: educational level

1. How to formulate the question
What was the last grade or year of study that you completed in either primary [elementary], middle, or superior school?

Two pieces of information are required:

a) The highest level of education; and,
b) The last year completed in that level.

The Republic of Guatemala's regular educational system is made up of the following levels of education:

a) Primary
b) Middle
c) Tertiary


The following definitions will help the enumerator in correctly classifying the population in this characteristic.

Primary education: The educational system providing the first elements of instruction (1st to 6th grades).

Middle education (secondary): A general, specialized, or both, system of education. The minimum prerequisite to enter into secondary education is the completion of elementary education. This level is currently divided into basic and vocational.

[p. 74]

Tertiary education: Education provided by universities and non-university technical schools. The minimum prerequisite to enter tertiary education is the completion of secondary education.

2. How to record the data

If the person has not completed any grade, the number "00. none" is circled.

The spaces that appear before the different levels of education, "1. Primary", "2. Middle," and "3. tertiary", are provided so that the last grade or year completed can be recorded.

Finally, number "99. unknown" is provided in case the informant cannot supply the information about the person in question.

Questions for persons aged seven and older only
If the person is less than seven, do not ask him/her question 13-24. Instead, go to the next person on the list.

14. Level of education
Before continuing with this question, familiarize yourself with the following definitions:

[A graphic of box 14, "Level of education," is reproduced on the left-hand side of the page.]

- Pre-primary education: the goal of pre-primary education is to provide early stimulation and promote the psychomotor development of the child in preparation for primary education.

[p. 56]

- Primary education: this level is intended to provide the basics of education (from first to sixth grade).

- Secondary education: this level is intended to provide either general or specialized education, or both. The student must have successfully completed primary school to enter secondary school. This stage of education is divided into basic and vocational.

- Higher education: this is education taught in state or private universities or advanced technical schools. The student must have successfully completed secondary school to enter an institute of higher education.

Ask, "What was the last grade you passed in pre-primary, primary, or secondary school, or an institute of higher education.

If the person has not passed any grade, mark an X in the circle corresponding to the 00 option. If the person passed pre-primary, mark an X in the circle corresponding to the 10 option.

For primary school, secondary school, and higher education, write the last grade passed in the appropriate grid space. Write the information in digits using number from 1 to 7 (7 being the maximum).

Classes taught at a university but of limited length (6 months, etc.) are not considered higher education.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Column P14: Level of Education
The level of education of a given individual corresponds to the last year of studies completed, or currently being completed in the case of students who are in the highest academic cycle in the national educational system. There are 4 academic cycles, which include from 3 to 7 years of study depending on the cycle:
a) Primary education
b) Middle school education (l'enseignement secondaire du 1er)
c) [Upper/high] school education
d) Vocational Training Type A (enseignement professionel du type A)
e) Vocational Training Type B (enseignement professionel du type B)
f) Higher education

A year of studies or, more precisely, a class of studies (class d'études) corresponds to a level of teaching in a given cycle.

Note: The inclusion of an individual in the category "Vocational Type A" or Vocational Type B" is linked to the level of education he/she reached on leaving the general education system. Thus:
Write "Vocational Type A" for anyone who entered the vocational track at the middle school level (collège, secondaire 2) or before;
Write "Vocational Type B" for anyone who entered the vocational track at the upper school level (lycée, secondaire 2) or later.

To fill out column P14 you will need to ask a series of 3 questions:
a) "Have you attended an educational establishment (établissement d'enseignement scolaire), either public or private?"
If the answer is no, then write "without" below the study cycle and "0" below" years of study.
If the answer is yes, then ask the following questions from b) and c), below:

[p. 45]

b) "What is the highest academic cycle you have reached?" There are six possible answers:

1) Primary school
2) Middle school (Secondaire, 1er cycle)
3) Upper/high school (Secondaire, 2ème cycle)
4) Vocational A (Professionnel A)
5) Vocational B (Professionnel B)
6) Higher education (Supérieur)

Write out the appropriate answer completely.

c) "What is the last year of study which you attended, or which you attend now, from the academic cycles indicated above?" Write out the last year declared as follows:
-1st A, 2nd A, 3rd A, 4th A, 5thA, or 6th A if the individual has attended the primary cycle;
-7th A, 8th A, 9th A, or 10th A if the individual has attended the middle school cycle (secondaire 1er cycle, college);
-11th A, 12th A or 13th A if the individual has attended the upper/high school cycle (secondaire 2ème cycle, lycée);
-1st A, 2nd A, 3rd A, if the individual has attended vocational [school] type A or B;
-1st A, 2nd A, 3rd A, 4th A, 5th A, 6th A, 7th A, 8th A, 9th A, 10th A if the individual has attended a university or higher education establishment.

Note: For the last year of high school (la terminale), write "13th A." Remember that studies carried out in Koranic schools should not be dealt with here; rather full-fledged teaching establishments. Use the classification of cycles and years used in general or vocational teaching to gather the corresponding information for people who have studied in or are studying in an Arabic school.

Educational characteristics
This section comprises questions 8, 9, and 10, and those questions should be asked to persons aged 5 years or older.

Column number 10: Last year completed
With this information, it is desired to know the educational level of the population and it is necessary that the enumerator pay special attention [to the occupant].

For the persons who have never attended school and for those who attended but did have not complete even their first year of study, a dash (-) is written down.

For the rest of the population, the number of the last year completed is written down, followed by a letter "P" for primary, "S" for secondary, or "U" for university.

[p. 21]

Some faculties in our [Honduran] University have a preparatory course. For those university students who have passed preparatory but who have not entered the first year of university studies, the annotation is "PU", which means University Preparatory.

The annotation will be as follows: 3P, 2S, 1PU, and 4U; meaning third year in primary, second year in secondary, first year in university preparatory, and fourth year in university.

Studies in the Vocational Technical Institute, School of Arts and Trades, Industrial Arts School, School of Fine Arts, and similar are considered to be secondary education.

Be careful when interviewing current students. The question refers to the last year completed and not to the current year of study. E.g. for a child attending the third year of primary, "2P" is written down since the last year completed is second.

For the child attending the first year of primary, a dash (-) is recorded since no studies have been completed.

For the person attending the first year of secondary, "6P" is recorded since the last year completed is the sixth grade in primary.

For those in their first year at the university, ask if they attended the preparatory course, if this is the case, 1PU is recorded. Otherwise, write 5S since the last year completed is the fifth grade in secondary.

Question 13.

For each person the highest grade reached in the primary (general) school and in the higher elementary school, respectively, should be registered. Further on, only those completed qualifications can be indicated which were obtained within the formal education system. Completed educational attainments are the following:
  • A certificate obtained upon the conclusion of full-time studies in an apprentice school,
  • A certificate obtained upon the conclusion of full-time studies in a vocational school,
  • The secondary school final exam certificate obtained in a grammar school or other secondary school; furthermore, the secondary school leaving certificates which were issued between 1974 and 1986,

13. Educational attainment

The aim of the interrogation is to acquire information on the level of schooling of the population. Therefore the types of schools and the classes, grades completed and the qualifications obtained in other types of schools not listed in the questionnaire must not be recorded. The answer "without completed school (00)" is marked for persons who did not even complete the general (primary) school, irrespective of their illiteracy.

The highest education i.e. the highest grade completed (also in case of the students) in the general (primary) school must be registered in the respective boxes, while the other institutions of the official school system the marking is necessary if the person has completed studies.

The completed studies abroad should be classified according to the Hungarian system, qualifications obtainable.

The different types of schools are the following
[Comment of the translator: quite many of the school types refer to educational systems that no longer apply. The names of the institutions might seem not familiar for the experts in the (traditional) classification of the educational institutions]:

The general (primary) school includes -- with the exemption of schools for extensive training -- each educational institution of elementary training, popular school, schools for back warded pupils and the so called "civilian school", as well as the first four years of the grammar school of 8 grades.

[p. 11]

The boxes at the "civilian school" can be used only if persons born before 1935.

The educational attainment, i.e. the grades completed must not be converted into the present educational system, e.g. in case a persons completed the 4th class of the "civilian school" "4" should be marked in the respective box.

While answering the further questions only the completed studies will be marked. The following items are regarded as completed studies:

-- Certificate of profession obtained on the day course of the school for training skilled laborers (former apprentice schools);

-- The certificate of profession obtained on the day course of the former course as well as the examinations on professional qualification;

-- The General Certificate of Education obtained in a grammar school or other secondary school as well as the final certificate on completion of the secondary school in the years from 1974 to 1986;

-- The certificate, diploma obtained by completing the studies in a university or other higher educational institution.

The manual further gives a detailed list on the educational institutions of secondary and high level education, the translation of the individual items seems not necessary.

The following qualifications must not taken into account even in case those have been obtained in an educational institution of the regular school system: certificates obtained in course raining, certificate of profession obtained within the adult training, certificate on completing the grades of higher educational institutions, special exams passed in postgraduate training (e.g. specialized physician, specialized engineer, judge, etc.).

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


5.4.1.0 Block 4.1 : demographic and current activity particulars during the week :
This block is meant for recording the demographic and the current activity status particulars of all the normal members of the household. Besides that, the information as to whether the household members are to be considered migrants according to certain laid down criterion will also be collected in this block.


5.4.1.10 Column (11): number of years of formal education:
The number of years a person has to attend on educational institution to pass a class, level or grade of education -- both general and technical -- excluding the number of years spent in pre-primary education (below standard one) will be recorded for each member rounded off to the nearest integer. Thus, for a person who is either studying in class XI has failed in class XI and has discontinued the education thereafter, the entry will be '10'. Similarly for a person studying say, in the second year of the degree course, the number of years to be recorded will be '13' (10+2+1) or for a person who has completed 9 months' technical education after passing class XII, the entry will be '13'. For those who pursued the old system of education, the number of years required would have to be worked out in the same manner. It may, however, be noted that the years spent for a person's attending some level or grade of education through correspondence course or through private study and passing out the level or grade as private or external candidate will not be counted for recording the 'number of years of formal education'. For example, if a person has passed class XII through attending an educational institution and then completed his graduation and post-graduation as a private candidate the 'number of years' to be recorded will only be 12.

For example, Indonesian music academy, Indonesian dance academy, foreign languages academy, business management academy, chemical analyst academy, meteorology and geophysics academy.

[p. 102]

Diploma IV/S1 is a diploma program at an institution of higher learning for a formal education of four years or a bachelor's degree. The Akta IV Program is equivalent to the Diploma IV level.

S2 and S3 are post-graduate education programs (master or doctoral), specialist 1 or 2 at an institution of higher learning.


Question 618: Highest grade/class ever attended/currently attending
Use codes 1 through 7.
Explanation:
a. Those who completed the highest grade of the highest level of education attended are given code "7".
b. Those who are currently attending/have ever attended post-graduate courses for the master degree program (S2) or doctoral degree program (S3) are given code "6".
c. Those who are currently attending/have ever attended the highest grade at the graduate program S1 are given code "5".


"Completed school" means that a person has passed the final exam of the highest grade of the level of education in which he/she was enrolled either in the public or private sector and has obtained a diploma/certificate of completion. Someone who has not yet attended the highest grade of a particular level of education, but he/she has passed the final exam of that level of education is considered to have completed school.

Note: For those who are currently attending/have ever attended an education program at a university or college that uses the course credit system (SKS), the information about grade/class attended can be obtained by asking an additional question as follows: "How many credit hours have you completed?" The respondent's answer can be converted using the follow guidelines:
0 - 30 credits -- Level 1
31 - 60 credits -- Level 2
61 - 90 credits -- Level 3
91 - 120 credits -- Level 4
121 credits or more -- Level 5

Example:

[p. 103]

1. A person who is currently attending/has ever attended courses in a college or university and has completed 30, 31, and 65 credits should be coded as follows:
Number of credits completed: 30 credits
Level ever attended: 1
Level currently attending: 2

Number of credits completed: 31 credits
Level ever attended: 2
Level currently attending: 2

Number of credits completed: 65 credits
Level ever attended: 3
Level currently attending: 3


2. For someone who transfers from the academy/diploma program III to a university using a converted credit score, then the level is determined based on the converted credit score plus the credit hours obtained from the university.

Section 4 - Education

5.34 General
These questions are to be answered for every individual. For babies the answers to these questions will obviously be None or Not Applicable. This may also apply to very young children. Thus for children up to two years you need not ask the question at all but score in the appropriate boxes. For children over two years you should ask the question since it is possible that very young children, certainly from about three years old, are sometimes sent to school.


5.37 Question 21 - Highest Level of Educational Attainment
This question is divided into three parts and relates to the whole population. It therefore includes persons who are still attending school. It relates to education already received. In cases where the individual was educated abroad, try to determine the equivalent level to those identified in the questionnaire and score. For persons attending JAMAL classes, obtain the highest level attained before JAMAL, score JAMAL only if the person has not attended school before.


5.39 Question 21(b) - Years of Schooling

[Image omitted here]

Ask the question this way:
"How many years of schooling did you (he/her) have"?
Mark the appropriate number of years. For persons who have had no formal schooling or attended school for less than one year, score "0".

Section 5 - Education

5.52 General
The aim of the section is to obtain information on the highest level of educational attainment among the entire population. Questions relate not just to current attendance but also to past attendance. As such, this section is relevant not only to school children but also to adults who may be furthering their education full-time or part-time.

You must pay close attention to the instruction on the questionnaire which precede the questions in this section.

5.53 For babies and young children not of school age, the question will obviously not be applicable. You should also be careful in the case of older persons who are not likely to be currently attending an educational institution, but for whom the questions on past attendance are applicable. It is recognized however, that adults do continue their education and the questions are therefore relevant.


5.60 Question 5.5 Years of Schooling
Record the total number of years of schooling that the person has had from infant school up to the highest level attained for persons who are attending school. For less than one year, score "01".

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Columns P22, 23 and 24: Education

80. The questions on education are applicable to persons aged 5 years and over. They refer to full-time education at formal educational institutions i.e. pre-primary, primary, secondary, and university.

Column P23: Highest level of education reached

82. What is the highest level of education this person has reached? Code in column P23 the highest level of formal education the person has reached i.e. class, form, University, the person has reached. If a person reached standard 4 and dropped out of school before completing it, he/she should be coded "04", etc. Refer to the code list on the cover page of the questionnaire.

Column P24: Highest level of education completed

83. What is the highest class or form this person has completed? If a person was at school and left before completing standard 4 he/she should be coded as having completed standard 3 hence code "03". If a person is at school and is attending standard 4 he/she should be coded as having completed standard 3 hence code "03". Refer to the code list on the cover page of the questionnaire.

84. The simple rule here is that for all persons attending school this year the highest level completed should be one level lower than the highest level reached. And for persons not attending school this year the highest level completed may be the same as the Highest Level Reached or one level below it, but not greater.

85. For example: record the highest class or form the person has completed in the formal primary and secondary school system e.g. a person in form one will have completed standard 8 and therefore should be coded as having completed standard 8, while those who have completed form one should be coded "11 ".1

(a) If a person has sat for 'O' level or 'A' level exams, through correspondence courses etc., that is, the person has not gone to formal school to achieve these certificates, code his/her highest level of education according to the highest exam he/she has sat and passed e.g. code "14" for 'O' level passed exams etc.

(b) If the person has attended university but never completed or is currently attending under-graduate studies code "17": If the person has completed under-graduate and above, code "18".

Highest level attended at primary or secondary school or university

52. This question refers to every person age 5 years or older irrespective of whether or not they were attending school in June, 1987. The purpose of the question is to find the highest level attended by each person. NOTE that we are asking for the highest level attended irrespective of whether or not he or she has actually written or passed any examination at that level.

53. In the case of primary and secondary schooling, you have to write in the highest class or form attended. Most people who left school before 1966 will tend to give the names of the classes used when they were at school and which may no longer be used. In this case, before you enter the number of the highest class reached, you must ask for the year in which they left school to enable you to convert their answer to the modern class names through the use of an "Educational Conversion Chart," which is on page 23 of this manual. For instance, Sub A and Sub B are to be recorded as Standards 1 and 2; old standard 5 as standard 7; old standard 8 as Form 2, etc. You should always check whether a person is giving old class names or the new class names before making an entry in the questionnaire. You are not required to write in the word "Standard" or "Form". You should only enter the letters: "S" for "Standard", "F" for "Form", and the Arabic number such as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.

54. Some people may not remember the highest class or standard they reached, and others may have been educated in another country where different names are given to classes. In such cases you should ask how many years they spent at school and enter the appropriate standard from your chart. Bear in mind

[p.11]

that pupils sometimes repeat classes and where appropriate you should ask a question about this. In particular you must not assume that because a person spent more than eight years at school then it means he attended a secondary school. You will only record him as attending a secondary school if he confirms that he actually did so.


Persons aged 5 years or more

[Questions (j) and (k) on Literacy and Education apply only to persons aged 5 years or more. Never ask any of these questions to persons younger than 5 years]


(k) Education


Highest level attended: Write the highest level of education attended by each person in a formal educational institution in the appropriate space provided before columns 33-34 using the following abbreviations:

[] NO No education

Leave columns 33-34 blank for office use.

For those who report to have attended up to primary school any time before 1962 or up to secondary school before 1966. You should use the Education Conversation Chart below to convert their responses to conform to the present class levels as given in the column for 1966-87.

Highest level of education attended: This refers to the highest level of education a person attended, irrespective of whether or not he or she has actually written or passed any examination at that level. This is also irrespective of whether or not one was in school or not in August, 1998.


B14. Highest level attended: Ask the respondent about the highest level of education attended for each member of the household aged 5 years or over. Record the appropriate code in the two boxes in column B14. For example, for a man who reached but did not complete standard 7, he should be considered as having attended 7 years of primary school. You should record '07' in column B14. If a girl repeated standard 8, her highest level attended will be standard 8 and you should record "08" in column B14.

a. In the case of primary and secondary schools, you should record the highest class or form attended. Most people who left school before 1966 will tend to give the names of the classes used when they were at school and which are no longer being used. In this case, before you enter the number referring to the highest class reached, you must ask for the year in which they left school. This will enable you to convert their answers to the modern class names through the use of an "Educational Conversion Chart" which is on page 17 of this manual. For instance, Sub A and Sub B are to be recorded as standards 1 and 2 respectively; old standard 5 as standard 7; old standard 8 as form 2, respectively, etc. You should always check whether the person is giving old class names before making an entry in the questionnaire.
b. Some people may not remember the highest class or standard they reached, and others may have been educated in another country where different names are given to classes. In such cases you should ask how many years that they spent at school and enter the appropriate code for the class from the chart. Bear in mind that pupils sometimes repeat classes and where appropriate you should ask a question about this. In particular you must not assume that because a person spent more than eight years at school then it means he attended a secondary school. You will only record him as attending secondary school if he confirms that he actually did so.

[Questions P16-P19 were asked of persons age 3 years or older]


P18. Highest level of school and years attended
The question should only be asked to household members age 3 years or older. Two types of questions should be asked: highest level of school and number of years of schooling.

The highest level should be irrespective of whether or not he/she has actually written or passed any examination at that level. It should be irrespective of whether or not one is currently in school or not.

The enumerator should also shade, in the second row, the appropriate code for the number of years attended at that particular level.

Example: If a man/woman reached but did not complete standard 7, he/she should be considered as having attended 7 years of primary school. Thus, Shade code 1 for highest level and 7 for number of years attended. If one repeated standard 8, shade 1 for highest level attended and 8 for years attended.

Most people who left school before 1966 will tend to give the names of the classes used when they were at school and which are no longer being used. In this case, before you enter the number referring to the highest class reached, you must ask for the year in which they left school. This will enable you to convert their answers to the modern class names through the use of an "Educational conversion chart" which is on page 45 of this manual. For instance, Sub A and Sub B are to be recorded as standards 1 and 2 respectively; old standard 5 as standard 7; old standard 8 as form 2, respectively, etc. You should always check whether the person is giving old class names before making an entry in the questionnaire.

Some people may not remember the highest class or standard they reached, and others may have been educated in another country where different names are given to classes. In such cases you should ask how many years they spent at school and shade the appropriate code for the class from the chart. Bear in mind that pupils sometimes repeat classes and where appropriate you should ask a question about this. In particular you must not assume that because a person spent more than eight years at school then it means he/she attended a secondary school. You will only record him as attending secondary school if he/she confirms that he actually did so.

Question 12
This question is to be asked of persons who had ever been to school, that is, both who are currently attending school and those who had completed schooling.

We are interested in only the highest level a person has completed, thus only one box is to be marked. If the person is not currently attending a school, you are to mark the level he/she had completed. If the person is currently going to school record the level he is currently attending, assuming that he would complete the level at the end of the year. If the person had left school during a year and did not complete that year, you are to mark the next level down, that is, the level which he did complete.

Persons who completed their schooling a long time ago or who were educated overseas may sometimes give an answer which you cannot fit into the boxes. The only solution is to ask them what they consider to be the present-day or Malaysian equivalent. Matriculation class is to be equated to the level 'Upper 6'.

The boxes presented in the question give the various levels (or Forms) in the current Bahasa Malaysia and English language streams. A table is attached which sets out the equivalent levels in other language streams and the pre-1954 English language equivalents. (See Form 14(a)/ 14(b)/14(c)).

Note that Vocational 1 in Sabah and Sarawak is equivalent to Form 4 (Vocational) in
Peninsular Malaysia. Vocational 2 and 3 in Sabah and Sarawak are equivalent to Form 5 (Vocational) in Peninsular Malaysia. For Sabah, Senior Middle III in the Chinese Medium school is to be equated to Form 5.

If the person has left school during a certain year without completing that level fully, mark the nearest level which he has completed fully.

For persons who have completed their schooling in Malaysia a long time ago and there are differences with the present-day educational system, you are to refer to Code Card (Document 6) to get the equivalent levels.

For persons who were educated overseas, you are to get the total years of study and to give the equivalent levels in the present-day educational system, e.g., for persons who have studied overseas for 8 years, you are to mark the equivalent level of schooling which if Form 2 (Code 9).

Reminder:
Matriculation class is assumed to be equivalent to Form 6 Upper (Code 14).

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Education
(Very important)

Column 19. If the enumerated declares that they can currently read and write, the word YES should be written in this column. If they declare that they only know how to read, but not how to write, or they only write but do not read, or they declare that they do not know to read nor right, the word No will be written.

Column 20. Your attention is called to the fact that the number of years of primary instruction study (elementary and superior) that the enumerated has finished and approved in official or private schools should be written in this column. Only one of the following numbers will be written in this column: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6, since primary instruction only includes up to 6 years.

Column 21. The number of years of study finished should be written, that is, attained in a school of a higher grade than that of primary. All the years beyond primary should be added up; therefore, the primary years should not be included, since they were [P. 22] asked about this in column 20. The words "Studies finished" in column 21 means years of study attained.

Column 22. This column is earmarked for collecting data about the type and grade of instruction that the enumerated is receiving on the census date, generally, by way of assistance at a school and, in exceptional cases, by way of classes received in their home or by correspondence. Write the type or studies and the year. For example: Primary 3rd, Secondary 1st, Preparatory 2nd, Medicine 2nd, Architecture 3rd, Electronics by correspondence, etc. Be careful not to write down the type of studies or the grade of instruction received previously by the enumerated, but rather only those that they are receiving on the census date.

5.1 Illiteracy

The question is directed to the population five years old or older. With it, the ability of the population between six and fourteen years old to read and write is to be known. Also it permits us to distinguish people 15 years older or older who know how to read and write (literate) from those who do not (illiterate).

When the answer is affirmative, circle code 1, in the contrary case, circle code 2.

[p. 102]

A person knows how to read to write when he or she can read and write a message. Not knowing how to read and write is considered when a person can only write his or her name, isolated words, some numbers or can only read ads, signs his or her name and small phrases.

If an informant responds "a little, " "not much," "more or less," "I write with ugly penmanship," it is necessary to know if the person can really read or write. For this, questions are asked like "can you read and write a letter?" or "Can you write something that has happened to you?"

Consider that there are people who know how to read and write and do not necessarily attend or attended school. Also, there are those who attend school yet do not know how to read or write. Because of this, whatever the answer the following questions should not be omitted.


5.4 Level of instruction

The question is asked to all people 5 years old or older with the goal of finding out the highest level of study passed by a person.

Level of instruction is the last grade of studies passed by a person within the formal educational system (preschool or kindergarten, primary, secondary, preparatory, or high school, basic normal, professional and post graduate).

[graphic of the question from the census form]

In this question, only grades or years passed are taking into account, and are written down in column 5.4A, in 5.4B the corresponding code of educational level is registered.

Question 5.4 has the following answer options.

Preschool or kindergarten 1

Register in 5.4A grades or years passed in preschool and in 5.4B code 1 if it is the last level studied by the person.

Primary 2

Code 2 is registered in 5.4B if the person declares those that form this level (from 1st to 4th grade) as the last grade passed. For example, if the response is took the third year of primary, 2 years have been passed, for which 2 grades in level 2 should be written down.

[p. 105]

When a person takes the first year of primary school and declarers to have attended it and
left it not passed and unfinished, ask for the years passed in preschool. If none, register 0 in the grade column and 0 in level. If a person is 12 years old or older go to question 5.5 of Other studies, if younger than this age, continue with the next person on the list.

When it is mentioned "went until fifth," it is important to distinguish if the year mentioned was passed, was not passed or was not finished. The expression "went to fourth" means took the fourth year and, therefore, there are three passed grades in primary school.

For people who mention having completed the six grades of study of primary school in four years, and got their certificate of complete primary school because the plan is structured as such, consider that if they did finish primary school and write down 6 in grades and 2 in level.

On the other hand, when a person has completed primary school in less years then required because of studying in a program of adult education in the system of open education, and received the certificate of complete primary education, register 6 in grades and 2 in level.

For people older than 50 years who declare to have finished primary school, but did not receive the corresponding certificate since they only passed three or four years of study because the there was no possibility of continuing due to the lack of teachers of school being far away, write down the years passed since it is not considered complete primary school.

Secondary 3

People who passed the last year of any of the grades of this level, even in general secondary schools, technical or tele-secondary schools are registered.

When a person declares to have studied secondary school in an open system of adult education, equate it as three years, that is, if it was completed in one year, write down 3 in grades and 3 in level.

In the case of people with any disability (cerebral palsy, mental weaknesses, etc) who have passed years of basic education (primary or secondary), in schools of special education, write down the grades passed and the level in the corresponding spaces. If a person has not or did not pass any year, write down 0 in grades and 0 in level.

[p. 106]

Preparatory or high school 4

Here people who passed the last level and grade in preparatory school, high schools, and technical schools that are equivalent are considered. When this is the situation, write down in 5.4A the grades passed and code 4 in 5.4B.

The educational centers that offer studies equivalent to preparatory or high school are the following:

- School of secondary education.
- School of Sciences and Humanities (CCH).
- Center of Secondary Industrial and Service Technology (CBTIS).
- Center of Secondary Agricultural and Livestock Technology (CBTA).
- Center of Scientific and Technological Studies (CECyT), before vocational.
- Center of Studies of the Sea (CETMar).
- Center of Technological Studies of Continental Waters (CETAC).
- Center of Secondary Forestry Technology (CBTF)
- Preparatory schools

It should be mentioned that in this level, studies done in Conlep (National School of Professional Technical Education) and CETI (Center of Technical Industrial Education) are not considered, since they are not studies equivalent to preparatory, but rather they are for technical purposes. When they tell you this type of study, write down the years passed in secondary school in question 5.4 and, later, register in the question in Other studies, the information about the technical career.

Also , if a person finished preparatory school in two years and can request the certificate write down 3 in grades and 4 in level, since it is equivalent to those normally required.

Normal basic 5

This option finds out information about people who take the Normal Basic whose requisite for joining was finish secondary school. If the requisite is preparatory, then they are considered within the professional level and option 6 is written down.

When an informant declares studies of normal basic and preparatory (high school), ask to pick one and register the grades and level in the corresponding spaces.

Professional 6

Include people with studies at the degree level done in universities, technologies, polytechnics, and other institutions of superior education, public or private, whose requisite to join is preparatory or high school.

[p. 107]

Studies done in the CETAS (Center of Technological Studies in Sub-Aquatic Activities) and Unitec (Technological University) since the precedent or requisite is preparatory or high school and they are three year schools and are not granted the level of degree are not considered in level of instruction. If they declare studies done in any of these institutions, register it as years passed in preparatory in question 5.4 and later, write down the information of technical career in the questions of Other studies.

When an informant responds that the person has finished the career, but does not know how many years were passed, register 4 in grades and 6 in level.

If a case is presented in which the preparatory or degree level is divided in trimesters or semesters, make the conversion to the calendar year according to the following information:

Two semesters, three four semesters, four trimesters, or six two month semesters equal a year.

For example, if an informant declares to have taken three semesters of professional, write down 1 in grades and 6 in level and went to the fifth semester, write down 2 in grades and 6 in level.

Some careers are taken in four and a half years, that is, nine semesters; in the case of passing all of them, only register 4 in grades.

For people who studied two degrees, only register the career that the informant selects, or the one where most years were taken.

In cases of careers that last more than eight years (music in the Conservatory), register 8 in grades and 6 in level.

Social service required in all careers and interment in the case of medicine are not considered passed grades. For example, if an informant declares to have taken the medical career in 7 years, ask if social service is being considered, and if the informant says it is, register 5 in grades.

Post graduate 7

This level means the studies of master and doctorate done after completing and having obtained a degree.

In the case of people who have passed any year of doctorate, add it to the years passed in masters and register them in the corresponding columns.

It should be clear that the specialties of doctors, whose duration is three years, can be equivalent to masters. Also, the subspecialty corresponds [p. 108] with the doctorate and they are studies with the duration of one to three years, so when they declare studies of this type, register them in this option.

On the other hand, diplomas and courses of specialization remain exclusively at the level of instruction, since they are not granted and academic grade and their scholarly precedence and duration vary. When they declare this type of studies, ask for the last grade and level passed in the formal educational system.

In the same way, when a person does not know how many years have been studied due to taking it in an open system of education in parts (primary and secondary) or subject matters (preparatory), make the conversion into calendar years, according to the following scheme:

Level / Grades / Level

Primary

Finished the first part / 4 / 2
Finished the second part / 6 / 2

Secondary

Finished the first part / 1 / 3
Finished the second part / 2 / 3
Finished the third part / 3 / 3

Preparatory

From 12 to 23 subject matters passed / 1 / 4
From 24 to 35 subject matters passed / 2 / 4
36 subject matters or more / 3 / 4

When a person declares to be taking the first grade of any level, register the grades passed in the previous level. For example, if the first year of secondary school is being taken, write down 6 in grades and 2 in level, which indicates that primary school was completed; or if the first year of preparatory school is being taken, write down 3 in grades and 3 in the level that corresponds to the finished secondary school.

If any person has studied in the United States, given the closeness with Mexico, make the following equivalents:

[The column to the left is in English]

Elementary School / Primary
Junior High / Secondary
High school / Preparatory or high school
College or University / Professional
Master or Doctor / Post graduate

When a person studied in any other country, ask what educational level corresponds to their studies with the levels included in the question. Also, investigate the total number of years passed.

[p. 109]

Does not know 99

Finally, if an informant does not know the information about any of the people on the list, register 9 in grades and 9 in level (Does not know).

16. Schooling

Record the last year or grade that the person passed in school and circle the code of the corresponding level; keep in mind the following in answering the question:

If the person is attending a grade in school, write down the previous year or grade that they passed.

If the person finished studying in fewer years, register the grades or years passed, as if they had attended the regular or a different schooling system of education. For example, when they have finished secondary school in the National Institute for the Education of Adults (INEA) in one year, record three years in option 3.Secondary.

[Depiction of this completed question on the enumeration form, and a related drawing]

When they declare semesters, trimesters, etc. write the equivalent in years attained; for this, take into account the following equivalencies: 2 semesters, 3 four-month periods, 4 trimesters, and 6 two-month periods each equal 1 year.

For example, if a person is attending the fourth semester of high school this means that they have not yet finished the second year, thus, write one year for this level.

If they mention that the person studies or studied high school and, as part of this study, a technical major, write the number of years passed under option 4.Preparatory or high school.

If they give you the name of a school ("Unitec", "Conalep", technological or other) or that of a degree (accountant, architecture, social work, nursing, etc.), ask if their studies are at a technical or professional level and record the number of years passed in the corresponding option.

Don't count trained hairdressers, special training and specialty courses. Only for medical specialties (pediatrics, cardiology, among others) should the number of years passed be recorded under the option Masters or doctorate.

[P. 74]

-If the person has done some number of years of a doctorate, add these to the number of years that the masters lasted and write the total number of years under this level.

-If the person studied in another country, ask them to tell you what educational level they studied in, as well as the number of years, and record this in the corresponding level.

22. Level of schooling
This question identifies the last grade (year) and educational level of the population in the National Educational System (SEN by its acronym in Spanish) or equivalent and it considers studies from kindergarten to doctorate.

[Figures are omitted]

Because the last degree approved by the person is information of interest, when the person is studying a year or grade level at the time of the interview, record the year or grade already completed, not the current one.

To properly register people according to the latest educational level approved, taking into account the following criteria:

[] None. Include in this option people who have never been to school, people who only learned to read and write and did not complete any school year. Also include in this option to children who are enrolled in the first year of preschool at the time of the survey.
[] Preschool or kindergarten. Include in this option people who completed preschool or kindergarten. Because some children do not attend the first or second year of preschool and enter directly to third year, record the previous year to the year that are studying although they did attend that year or the degree completed.
[] Primary. Register here people who have completed primary education. If the person finished studying in fewer years in the Open Educational System, record the number of approved years as if he/she had studied in the regular system of education. For example, if the person finished elementary at the National Institute for Adult Education (INEA, for its acronym in Spanish) in three years, recorded six years and circle code 2 "Primary".
[] Secondary. Include in this option people who have completed secondary education. If the person finished studying in fewer years in the Open Educational System records the number of approved years as if he/she had studied in the system of regular education. For example, if the person finished high school at the National Institute for Education Adults (INEA, for its acronym in Spanish) in one year, recorded three years and circle the code 3 "Secondary".
[] Preparatory or General Baccalaureate. Register in this option people who just completed their studies or are studying in high schools or general baccalaureate. When the answer is expressed in semesters, trimesters, quarters, or two-months period, you must round it to the equivalent in approved years.
One year equals to:
[] 2 semesters
[] 3 quarters
[] 4 quarters
[] 6 two-month periods
If the person finished studying in fewer years in the Open Education System, record the number of approved years as if he/she had studied in the system of regular system of education. For example, if he/she finished high school in open system in one year, record three years and circle the code 4 "Preparatory or general baccalaureate".
[] Technical Baccalaureate. Classify in this level people who studied simultaneously the baccalaureate and technical studies, at the same school. Also, circle this option when the person mentions that studied at:
[] CBTIS. Center for Baccalaureate of Technology, Industrial, and Services.
[] CBTA. Center for Baccalaureate Technology Agricultural.
[] CECYT. Center for Scientific and Technological Studies, also called Vocational Studies.
[] CETMAR. Center for Sea Studies.
[] CETAC. Centre for Technological Studies of Inland Water.

[] Technical or commercial studies with primary or secondary completed. Register here people who are currently studying or studied a technical degree. To place them in the correct level, ask to the person which studies were requested to enter in that program.

If the person is pursuing a technical career simultaneously to primary, secondary, or preparatory, do not register him/her in this category, instead record him/her in primary, secondary, or technological baccalaureate, respectively.

Consider that technical studies with completed primary are also called job training. Furthermore, technical studies with completed preparatory are also called as technical college degree (TSU for its acronym in Spanish) or associated professional.

[] Education degree with completed primary or secondary, and Education degree in college. Register here people who are studying or studied Education, you must ask what requirements they needed to enter to place them in the correct level.
[] Degree. Circle this option when people claim to have or to study any baccalaureate, for example, Engineering, General Medicine, Actuarial Sciences, Architecture, among others.
[] Specialty. This course last at least one year, which is taken after the degree and goes in depth the knowledge on a specific topic. Therefore this category includes people with medical specialties (General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, among others) and subspecialties (Cardiovascular Surgery, Cardiology, Pediatric Cardiology, among others); there are also specialties in other areas. Certification programs or language courses are not included in this option.

When the answer is "baccalaureate with specialty" asks whether specialty studies were taken at the end of the baccalaureate or at the same time. If the specialty was at the same time, it must be recorded as baccalaureate; if it was after concluding the baccalaureate, it is recorded as a specialty.

[] Master's degree. Register in this category people with studies after the degree, it lasts at least two years.
[] Doctorate. This is a study subsequent to the degree or master's degree; and it lasts at least two years. Classify in this category people who declare it, as well as people who mention having a postdoc.

If the person studied in another country, ask what educational level is equivalent to his/her studies, as well as the number of years approved, and register this information at the corresponding level. If the person studied in the United States of America, to make conversions use the conversion table which is in the Annex.

When the person is on vacations, record the degree that just passed and circle the corresponding educational level.

If the respondent states that has no an educational level, preschool or primary, continue with question 23 "Literacy"; if his/her educational level is secondary or more pass to question 24 "Municipality of residence in 2010".

169. In this question, you will record either the highest education level an individual has completed if a person has previously attended or is attending school. For those attending school, in most cases the education level completed is always not the grade/level they are presently enrolled in, but the previous grade/level. For example, if a child is presently enrolled in grade 6, the highest grade completed will be grade 5, and should be recorded as" 05" on the questionnaire. For children attending first grade write "00".

170. Vocational training (record "13") means that completed education/training after high school for certain professions, for example, plumbing, electrical, roofing, refrigeration, carpentry, cabinet making, hair dressing, cosmetology, tailoring etc.

171. College "12" means a person is a student at under-graduate university level; Bachelor degrees (Graduate) are coded "15"; all Masters of Arts, Masters of Science and Masters of Philosophy degrees are marked as option "17". Doctorate degree (Ph. D., option "18") is an advanced research university degree, which for successful completion, requires the submission of a thesis or dissertation of publishable quality. For someone who has had no schooling, code "00".

172. There are respondents who went to school during different system of education in Myanmar. That is during the colonial period, in the former education system and the current education system. A table has been prepared and presented below to assist in coding of education attainment question. It will also be given to interviewers during field enumeration. If for example, a respondent tells you that he completed Standard 9 during former education system, check the correct code using the conversion table, according to the first column and last column the correct code is "10". The conversion table will prove very useful for those respondents who went through the pre-colonial and former system of education. It should also be used for foreigners who schooled in different education systems. Those who have completed education level i.e. high school - "11", diploma - "14", university - "15", should be coded appropriately.

Column 9: What ____ is level of education passed?
[] 1. Level passed ____
[] 2. Field of study for SLC above ____


This question has two parts: level passed and field of study for SLC and above. The meaning of level of education passed (for read and write) refers the level passed of formal education or which of the level of study is completed by the respondent. For collecting the information on educational qualification, level passed should be written. If the level passed is SLC and above then the major field of study should also be mentioned.

1. Level passed: For the level passed, the educational qualification of the highest level passed by the respondent should be mentioned. If the respondent has passed the examination of different subjects of the same level then any one among the level passed should be mentioned as reporting interests of the respondents; however, the ongoing level should not be mentioned. In case of formal education, if the person studied in all types of educational institution like school, campus (college) or university and passed some level, then he/she should have the certificate of educational level passed. If the level passed is in school level then level passed should be ranges from 1 to 10 or SLC. For campus or university level, level passed might be certificate level (intermediate), diploma, degree, PhD etc. The respondents should be asked for their highest level passed and should be written after confirming it.

Example: If Pramila Kumari Chaudhary is studying on class nine, then level passed for her should be mentioned class 8. If any person appeared in SLC but the result is not published then the level passed should be written as class 10. For those people who failed the examination of SLC the level passed should also be written as class 10. For those who have old Nepali educational qualification, they should be asked for their level passed and it should be mentioned same as their answer e.g. Nepali 7, Nepali 11, etc. For the person studied Sanskrit, the level passed: prathama (level first), madhyama (intermediate), Sastri (equivalent to diploma) acharya (equivalent to master degree) should be asked and written carefully. For those respondents who have taken training only, mention the level passed only if their level is clear.

Individual information
After collecting the introductory and household information of data sheet 1, there are questions for individual information collection on the right side of the page. To write individual information, a row has been allocated for each member of the family. Sequence and rules for information collection have been put accordingly. In line with this, ask the question and fill the information. The response of each individual question should be written in the respective column.

Column 15: what is the highest education level of [the respondent]?

[] 1 Grade/level completed ____
[] 2 If above is a (School Leaving Certificate) (SLC), write the key area/subject ____

(Do not ask this question to persons who cannot read or write, nor who do not go to school/college).

The grade/level of education means the highest level completed by persons who have attended the formal education system. Write the completed level of education. If the person has completed above SLC education, specify the area of expertise or major.

1. The level of education completed - Write the highest level of education that the person has completed. If a person has completed various subjects of same level, write the subjects that the person wants to report. Do not write the level that the person is currently studying. In the formal education system, if a person has completed a certain level of school, college or university, he/she would have taken certificate of completion. If the person has only completed school level, it could be from grade 1 to 10 or SLC. If it was college or university level, it could be intermediate, bachelor, master, or PhD. Ask the person which level he/she has completed, and write the completed level. Nowadays, children starts to go in early age. In this condition, the children who are 5 years old but are studying are attending an early grade or can only read and write. Write "00" to specify the completed level of such children.

Example - If Pramila Kumari Choudhari is currently studying in grade 9, then her completed grade should be written as 8. If someone has taken SLC exam but the result is not out yet, write the completed level as 10. For the person who failed SLC, write 10 as completed level. For people who have completed the old Nepalese school, write the current level completed (e.g. Nepalese 7, Nepalese 11, etc.). For the people who have studied Sanskrit, write the completed level as Prathma, Madhyama, Shastri, or Acharya whichever they have completed. For people who have taken some kind of training, write their completed level only if it is specified.

NB: - If a person has learned through informal education or self-study, but has not completed any formal education level, write "informal" in the place of completed level.

2. Main area/subject (If above SLC) - if a person has completed above SLC level (e.g. IA, BA, MA), write main area/subject studied after specifying completed level. If the certificate or above level completed identifies which is the main area of study (e.g. Humanities, Commerce, Science, Education, Engineering, Medicine, etc.) write it.

Example - Shyamkrishn Dhobi is studying his bachelor in Humanities. He has completed ISc (Science). In this situation, write the completed level as certificate level and area of study as Science. If Ratnamaya Nakarmi is studying her bachelor in Civil Engineering, then her completed level would be certificate level (Engineering).

Chapter Two: Concepts and Definitions
The following concepts and definitions were used in data file:

Population census:
The process of collection, classification, processing, analysis, assessment, dissemination of statistical data on the number of population and their distribution by basic demographic and socio-economic characteristics in a specific reference period within the boundaries of a specific geographic area.

Kindergarten:
Any educational institution licensed by MOE offering education to four or five year olds. Kindergarten consists of the first and second grades.

Educational attendance:
Attendance means registering the person in any formal education stage irrespective of whether it took the form of continuous attendance or distant learning. Formal education stages include the elementary stage, preparatory stage, (both of which are referred to as the basic stage), secondary stage, and higher education stage.

1. Attending: It applies if the person is currently enrolled in a regular educational stage.

2. Attended and left: It applies if the person unsuccessfully left a regular educational stage, i.e., without obtaining any degree.

3. Attended and graduated: It applies if the person successfully graduated from a regular educational stage and did not enroll in any stage after that.

(Only for persons 7 years old or more)


Question 11 What is the highest grade or year of schooling completed?

Write down the grade as a number in the line that corresponds to the level of schooling. For example, if the person says [p. 39] that fifth grade in primary school was passed, the annotation will be in the following form: Primary 1 ___5. If the third year of secondary school was passed, it will be written down: Secondary 2 ___3.

[The instructions refer to a graphic of question 11 of the census form.]

Do not use roman numerals. Keep in mind that the highest grade or year completely passed is being sought and consequently half years and grades that have not been finished or completely passed will not be written down.
If the person has received instruction abroad or in schools in the Panama Canal Zone, write down with the closest approximation the equivalent grade in the regular system of education of this country. For example: The 8th grade in schools in the Panama Canal Zone is equal to the 2nd year of secondary education in Panama.
If the person did not pass any grade or year, mark X in box 4.
Keep in mind that the grade or year refers only to that which was passed within the three levels of regular education (primary, secondary and university) that is given in public or private schools (See Annex 2 which refers to the schools of regular secondary education).
Therefore, special studies or vocations that do not require passing from a first cycle such as sewing schools, business schools, cooking schools, confectionary schools, secretary schools, telegraph schools and other such schools including correspondence schools will not be considered courses of regular education. If the person claims to have taken one of these classes of special studies, insist on obtaining the information that refers to the last grade or school year passed in schools of regular education.

Question 9 What is the highest grade or school year you have completed?

Before making the corresponding annotations, follow these instructions:

Do not use roman numerals. Keep in mind that the highest grade or year of regular education totally passed is requested and consequently neither half grades nor grades that have not been completely finished or passed should be written down.
If the person has received education abroad or in schools in the Panama Canal Zone, write down the equivalent grade in the system of regular education of this country with the closest possible approximation. For example: the 8th grade of the schools of the Canal Zone of Panama is equivalent to the 2nd grade of secondary schooling in Panama.

[p. 35]

Therefore, courses of regular education, special or vocational studies that do not require the passing from a first cycle, such as some sewing schools, business schools, cooking schools, confectionary schools, secretary schools, telegraph schools, and other similar schools as well as correspondence schools will not be considered. Example [all refer to specific, well-known schools in Panama]:

The Applied School of Commerce

Below, examples of how to fill out the corresponding boxes are described:
Write down the grade in the box corresponding to the class of regular education. Examples:
a) The person claims to have passed the forth grade of primary school, the annotation will be made like: Primary (1) (4)
b) For the case of persons who declare to have passed any grade in the basic cycle, the annotation should be done on the level of primary. Example: If the person passed the eighth grade, it will be written down as: Primary (1) (8)


[p. 76]

c) The person claims to have passed the third year of university, annotation would be: University (3) (3)

If the person claims to be attending the first grade of primary school, or attends a kindergarten or children's center, mark the box "No grade" (X) 04. Also include in this box persons who have never attended school.

For persons 4 years old or older


Question No. 11: What was the highest grade or school year you passed?

The objective of this question is to know the maximum grade of education achieved by persons in order to distinguish between those who finished or not, every one of the educative levels, besides, it permits us to detect if there have been, with time, changes in the educational structure.
Remember that this question is applied to persons 4 years old or older.
Mark the circle or write down in the corresponding space agreeing with the level of education, the number of years the person passed.
Keep in mind the following definitions:

a) No Grade: is when a person did not go to school or did not finish first grade of primary school.

b) Pre-school: is understood to be care centers or learning centers for children generally under 6 years, here is included both centers of adaptation like nurseries, day care, children's centers, pre-kindergarten, and Centers for Infant Orientation where they take care of infants, as well as centers of education like Kindergartens and Day-Care.

c) Special Education: is the actions meant for providing educational opportunities to those whose physical, mental, emotional, social or pedagogical conditions require particular attention with the goal of developing the maximum of their capacities. Example: Panamanian Institute of Special Needs (IPHE).

d) Primary: This type of education is free and obligatory for all minors understood to be between six (6) to fifteen (15) years of completed age. Nevertheless, it is possible to find students with ages between five (5) and eighteen (18), attending primary school.

e) Vocational: Its purpose is to prepare directly the students for a craft of profession, consisting of a basic cycle of vocational orientation of two (2) years of duration, has as a requisite the possession of a certificate of finishing primary studies.

f) Secondary: This educational level has as a prerequisite the passing of the primary level of education, and is at the same time required for superior education. Middle education is integrated by two cycles:


[p. 80]

First Cycle: usually consists of three (3) years. It requires a certificate of finishing primary studies.

Second Cycle: generally is represented by a Bachelor in sciences, letters or business. Its pre-requisite is possessing a certificate of first cycle. Normal education which also prepares for teacher training also requires the same pre-requisite.

g) Superior Non-University: is the education that superior institutes of diverse specialties offer, these institutes have their own programs, curriculum and because of their characteristics are not considered university courses, such as Tourism, Institute of Computer Science, etc. its requirement is to have a bachelor or secondary degree, and its duration is two (2) years.

h) Superior University: is the education that is imparted at the [The following is a list of specific universities in Panama.] University of Panama, "Technología" of Panama, Santa María La Antigua, del Istmo, Latina de Costa Rica, Interamericana, ULACIT and others.

i) Graduate: is studies that are done corresponding to the superior university level after the academic level.

j) Masters: refers to the superior academic level, after having obtained a degree.

k) Doctorate: refers to the highest academic level that a person can aspire to, having finished the degree is required.

These last three stages of study can be of one, two or three years, either in the country or abroad.

Do not use roman numerals. Keep in mind that the highest grade or year of regular education totally passed is requested and consequently neither half grades nor grades that have not been completely finished or passed should be written down.
In those schools or secondary schools in which premedia [equivalent to middle school] has been implemented, if a person claims to study the 7th, 8th or 9th grade, remember that it refers to the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year of formal secondary education.
If a person has received education abroad or in schools in the Panama Canal Zone, write down the equivalent grade in the system of regular education of the country with the closest possible approximation. For example: the 8th grade of the schools of the Canal Zone of Panama is equivalent to the 2nd grade of secondary schooling in Panama.

[p. 82]

Consider as a vocational school those that are not incorporated in the system of regular education and that teach dressmaking, mechanics, electricity, commerce arbitrator, etc. Do not include in this category schools and official schools known as vocational but that are incorporated into the system of regular education, such as is the case of the School of Arts and Crafts and the professional and technical institutes that are found in different parts of the national territory.
Note: If a person has studied in a school of regular education and also, in a vocational school, consider as level passed as the one of regular education, always and when this one is the highest; in the case of them being the same in both schools, write down the one of the regular school

[Questions 13 and 14 were asked to individuals 4 years old and older]


Question No. 14: What is the highest level and grade or school year you have completed?
[Questions 13 and 14 were asked to persons 4 years old and over]
The objective of this question is to know the maximum grade of education achieved by persons in order to distinguish between those who finished or not, every one of the educative levels, besides, it allows us to detect if there have been, over time, changes in the educational structure.
Remember that this question applies to those 4 years old and older.
Mark the circle or write down in the corresponding, according to the level of education, the number of years a person approved.
Consider the following definitions:
Level of education: It is defined as the degree or highest degree level approved in the regular education system as it is imparted in schools or public or private universities in the country, i.e. primary, premedia [equivalent to middle school], secondary, vocational and university .
The latter may be at a technical, undergraduate, graduate, masters or doctorate level. If the person has received education abroad, please report a nearly as possible equivalent degree in the regular education system of the country. Distance courses are not considered regular education.

a) No grade: is when a person did not go to school, or did not complete the first grade of primary school.
b) Pre-school: Includes care centers or learning centers for children, usually under age 6. This includes both adaptation centers, such as nurseries, day-cares, children's centers, pre-kindergarten, and centers for infant orientation where they take care for infants, and education centers such as kindergartens or day-cares.
c) Special Education: Comprises the actions meant for providing educational opportunities to those whose physical, mental, emotional, social or educational, conditions require special attention in order to develop their full potential. Example: Panamanian Special Institute (IPHE).
d) Primary: This type of education is free and compulsory for all children within the ages of six (6) to fifteen (15) years old. However, you may find students aged between five (5) and eighteen (18) years attending primary school.


[p. 158]
e) Vocational: Its purpose is to prepare students directly for a trade or profession; it consists of a basic cycle of vocational training of two to three years in length and has as a requisite the possession of a certificate of completion of primary studies in progress.
f) Middle or Secondary Education: This level of education has as a prerequisite the completion of the primary level of education, and it is, in turn, required for higher education. Secondary education consists of two cycles:

First Cycle or premedia [equivalent to middle school]: usually consists of three (3) years. It requires a certificate of completion of primary education in progress or the completion of primary education.
Second cycle or Middle: It is usually represented by a degree in sciences, arts and commerce. Its prerequisite is having a certificate of completion of the first cycle of secondary education or a certificate of completion of premedia studies. Normal education that prepares for the teaching practice also requires the same pre-requisite.

g) Higher, non-university: is the education that superior institutes of diverse specialties offer; these institutes have their own programs, curriculum, and because of their characteristics they are not considered university degrees, such as tourism, Institute of Computer Science, etc. Its requirement is to have a bachelor or secondary education degree, and its duration is two years.
h) Higher, university: is the education taught at universities such as: University of Panama, Universidad Tecnologica of Panama, Santa María La Antigua, Universidad del Istmo, Universidad Latina, Interamericana, ULACIT and others.
For private universities, list the years actually approved, not quarters or semesters.
i) Specialization or graduate: Studies carried out after obtaining an undergraduate degree; diplomados [equivalent to a diploma or certificate] are excluded. Duration: 1 year.
j) Master's: Refers to a higher academic degree, after having obtained an undergraduate degree. Maximum duration: 2 years.
k) Doctorate: refers to the highest academic level that a person can aspire to; having completed an undergraduate degree is required. Duration: 3-4 years.

These stages of study can be performed, either in the country or abroad.
As you can observe, there is a code on each answer choice so you only have to put the last digit according to the respondent's answer.
[p. 159]

[Above the text there is a sample image of the form.]
Do not use roman numerals. Keep in mind that the highest degree or year entirely approved is requested and consequently neither half a degree nor degrees that have not been completely finished or passed should be written down.
If the person has been educated abroad or in schools operating in the Panama Canal Area, write down as nearly as possible the equivalent grade in the regular education system of the country. Example: The 8th grade in those schools is equivalent to the 2nd year of secondary school in Panama.
Consider as a vocational school those that are not incorporated in the regular school system and that teach dressmaking, mechanics, electricity, commerce arbitrator, among others. Do not include in this category public schools such as the School of Arts and Crafts (Melchor Lasso de la Vega) and professional and technical institutes located in different parts of the national territory.
In those schools or colleges where premedia [equivalent to middle school] has been implemented, if a person indicates that she is in 7th, 8th or 9th grade, remember that she refers to 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of formal secondary education.
[p. 160]
Note: If a person has studied in a school of regular education and also, in a vocational school, consider as level passed the one in a school of regular education, as long as this one is the highest one or [at least] the same.
Maximum values for grade levels.
The maximum parameters are listed for each level as follows:
Primary [1] [6]
Vocational [2] [3]
Secondary [3] [6]
High - Not University [4] [2]
High - University [5] [6]
Specialization (Graduate) [6] [1]
Master's degree [7] [2]
Doctorate [8] [4]

[p. 161]
Example No. 1: The respondent declares she has just completed a Masters in Advertising (2 years), after finishing an undergraduate degree (four years).
[Below the text there is a sample image of the form.]
Example No. 2: The person got an undergraduate degree in Electro-mechanics at a vocational school (3 years).

Section 6 - The census questions

Urban RNVs and rural villages

Question 11

What is the highest grade you finished at school?

Grades one to six are primary school level grades seven to twelve are high school level.
Write down the last grade fully completed e.g. If someone is in grade five now, this means he has fully completed grade four. So write G4.
Primary schools were standards 1 to 6.
Secondary schools were forms 1 to 4.
If you get an answer form 2 then write F2.
If you get an answer Standard 6 then write S6.
Include any correspondence study. If a person has passed grade 10 fully by correspondence then write grade 10.

[pg.65]

University preliminary year is equivalent to grade 12.
Ask this question for any person in the family.
If a person is now doing tertiary education, you must still ask this question as you cannot take it for granted that he has necessarily completed grade twelve.
For people with overseas schooling write down the highest level they finished at a school overseas.
Be careful not to embarrass old people.
Bible schools and Tok Ples schools are a problem. In most cases these do not have an official grade and thus if someone only went to one of these write 'NIL'. We are looking for recognized schooling for the purposes of getting a job.
Vocational schools do not count as a grade unless they actually obtain a certificate saying that they have passed grade 8 or grade 10. Some vocational schools do the correspondence course.

How to ask: "What is the highest grade/level of education that the person has completed?"

How to record: Write the highest grade completed in the two boxes, Formal education grades are Grade 01 to Grade 2. For example, for Grade 5 write "05".

-Write "00" for no schooling, or no grades completed.
-Record only the grades completed. If they are still at school, do not include the grade the person is in now. For example: Ila is in Grade 9 this year. He completed Grade 8 last year, so write "08" in the code boxes.
-In most cases you will not need to write anything in the space provided before the boxes.
-If the person was educated overseas, write the highest level achieved in the blank space provided (e.g., high school).
-Then write the number of years of schooling in the two boxes.
-Write "00" for persons who have never attended school and those who are in their first year of formal school, attending pre-schools, elementary or Tok Ples schools.
-Only write the highest grade completed in the formal school system. Do not include education after leaving high school. For example, if a person completed Grade 10 before completing a computer correspondence course, write 10 in the box.

Note: Record the grade completed and not the grade he/she doing now.

Educational characteristics


Item XIII: Education level

164 - Annotate (with a number) the last year of studies attained by the person on the dotted line corresponding to the type of instruction that they have received in a regular education establishment.

165 - On the Census form there have been six levels of instruction specifically considered, plus an additional level under the heading: "other;" whose particular cases should be appropriately studied in the process of revision of information, after the enumeration.

166 - The aforementioned levels of information are the following: Primary education, which is imparted in Primary Schools, daytime or nighttime and Agricultural Schools; Basic, in the national schools and lyceums; in the Secondary/High schools, Military School, metropolitan and regional Seminaries, and Military Lyceum; Teacher Training, in the National schools for Teachers and Regional schools; Commercial, in the Schools of Commerce; University, in the Schools of Law, Medicine, Economic Sciences, Philosophy and Letters, Architecture, Physical Sciences and Math, Chemistry and Pharmacology, Dentistry, Veterinary, and Agronomics.

167 - Education that does not exactly correspond to any of the previous levels is considered under the heading "other," particularly studies in bachelors/high school graduates or University.

168 - Among these, for example, is the education dictated in the Professional Training Schools for women: dieticians, midwives, nurses, social services, fine arts, and music. For males, vocational schools, or technical schools.

[pg. 23]

169 - The numbers 0 (zero) through 6 are printed immediately after the specific name of each level of instruction, corresponding to the code by which each level is differentiated. The number corresponding to the years of study attained, within the respective level of instruction, should be annotated on the dotted line immediately after this code. Thus, for example, for a person who attained the fourth year if Primary, the annotation on the form would read: Primary 1 x 4; if they attained the Third year of Basic, it would read: Basic 2 x 3; if they attained the Second year of Teacher Training, it would read: Teacher Training 4 x 2, and so on, depending on the case.

170 - For the registration of the information under the heading "other," one should proceed in the same way as for the cases indicated in paragraphs 167 and 168. For example, for a Nurse who attained the first year of study, under the heading "other" write: Nurse 1. And so on depending on the case.

171 - For a person who never attained a single year of school annotate a 0 (zero) after the code corresponding to the heading "No education," so that the annotation reads: No education 0 x 0.

172 - If the person remembers the level of education attained but not the last year attained, annotate an "X" on the dotted line corresponding to the last level of instruction. For example: Primary 1 x

173 - If the person does not remember the level of instruction or the year of study attained, but, being literate, is sure that they attained some year of regular study, annotate a double (XX) on the line corresponding to the heading "Other." For example: Other XX.

These questions are asked only of persons seven years old and older.


11. Level of instruction
We understand as regular education, that given in schools, private schools, and universities (public or private) and that given by other institutions that extend equivalent degrees, even if they are of different nature (military schools and institutions, seminaries, technical or vocational schools, agricultural schools, etc.).

Not considered as institutions for regular education: the academies for clothing design and production, short-hand, hair dressing, dancing, etc.

If the enumerated person does not have any passed grade, mark the box, "none".
If he/she studied only in the elementary school, note in the line "elementary", and next to the printed 1, write the last grade passed, in numbers.

The same procedure should be followed for the levels of study. For persons who have done "literacy courses for adults", you should use the following equivalencies:

Adult literacy / Regular elementary education
1st cycle passed / 3rd grade passed
2nd cycle passed / 5th grade passed
3rd cycle passed / 6th grade passed

The secondary education is shown divided according to specialties.
On the line "degrees obtained" you should note all of those obtain by the enumerated person, from regular education institutions or not.

Question 13. What is the last grade or course attained in regular instruction?

Read each of the options. Write down the grade or course in the corresponding life. Make an X in the box corresponding to none if the person did not attain any grade. Make an X in the box corresponding to unknown if the person giving the information does not know the level of instruction of the person.

[A depiction of Question 13 to the right of the preceding text is omitted here.]

Regular instruction means the instruction imparted in schools, high schools [colegios], and Universities (public or private), and the instruction imparted by other institutions that offer equivalent titles, even if they are of a distinct nature: military academies, religious schools [Salesianos], technical and vocational schools, agricultural school, etc.

[P. 46]

For those persons who have completed adult literacy courses, use the following equivalencies:

Adult literacy :

1st course attained
2nd course attained
3rd course attained


Regular instruction:
3rd grade attained
5th grade attained
6th grade attained


Titles obtained: On this line, write the titles obtained by the person in the institutions of regular teaching.

Example: Bachelor of commerce, bachelor of humanities, lawyer, civil engineer, etc.

  • If the person studied in a non-traditional setting [Educación No Escolarizada, when students do not attend classes in a physical school on a daily basis], write the year passed and the appropriate level.

[p. 50]
No Level. This is when the person never attended a school. Include children who were in pre-primary classes [Educación Inicial] on the day of the census.
Pre-primary. This includes those who finished the following classes: early childhood center [estudios de nido], day-care [Cuna guarderia], kindergarten, national pre-primary non-traditional program [Programa Nacional no Escolarizado de Educacion Inicial] (Pronoei) and day care for children less than 4 years old [Wawa wasi].
Primary. According to the current educational system, this includes grades one through six. In the previous educational system it included the final pre-primary grade [transicion] and grades one through five for both children and adults.
Secondary. According to the current educational system, this includes years one through five for both children and adults.
Non-University Higher Education. This includes teacher training schools [escuelas normales]; professional training schools [escuelas superiores de educacion profesional]; non-commissioned officer training in the armed forces; business schools; technical colleges; and teaching colleges [institutos superiores pedagogicos]. In all of these schools the length of study is generally at least three years.
University Higher Education. This includes universities; officer training schools for the police and the armed forces; seminary schools; the Peru College of Art; the National Teaching College; nursing college; journalism school; and the Diplomatic Academy of Peru. In all of these schools the length of study is at least four years.
Examples:
  • Ana only passed the last year before primary school [transición]. Circle option 3, "Primary," and write 0 in the box which corresponds to year. Leave the space for "Grade" blank.
  • Lupita passed sixth grade. Circle option 3, "Primary," and write 6 in the space which corresponds to grade. Leave the space which corresponds to year blank.
  • Levi studies psychology at the university and has passed his fourth year. Circle option 7, "University Higher Education -- Incomplete."
  • Ricky is studying accounting in a college [instituto superior], not a university. He passed his fourth-semester of classes. Circle option 5, "Non-University Higher Education -- Incomplete."

P22 Highest Educational Attainment

[The publication states: "Refer to Section 7.3 (p. 78) in filling up this item." This section is pasted from Common Household Questionnaire instructions, section 7.3]

Data on highest educational attainment furnish material for a comparison of the present educational equipment of the adult population with the present and anticipated future requirements of manpower for various types of economic activities.

Highest educational attainment refers to the highest grade or year completed in school, college or university.

Ask the question in P22, "What is the highest grade/year completed by ___?" for all persons 5 years old and over.

If the answer given is in terms of the level of the school only and not the specific grade or year completed, determine the specific grade or year by asking the respondent additional questions. The answer "Elementary" or "High School" is insufficient. It is necessary to know the highest grade or year of elementary school or high school attended and passed.

Enter in P22 the code corresponding to the highest educational attainment. For example, enter 1100 if the person has only completed Grade 1, 1300 for Grade 3 or 2200 for 2nd year High School. If the person has not completed any grade at all, enter 0000. Codes for highest grade completed are listed at the bottom of the questionnaire.

Report also in P22 the post secondary course that a person has completed. Post secondary course refers to the stage of formal education following the secondary education level covering non-degree programs that have varying duration lasting up to three years, concerned primarily with developing strong and appropriately trained middle level manpower.

Include here those vocational/technical courses under post secondary education (formal education). These courses are offered in school, university/college and require completion of high school course (high school graduate). Exclude those post secondary courses taken in NMYC and other schools that are not within the regular system of education.

In order to determine whether the vocational/technical course reported by the respondent is under post secondary education (formal education) the following probing questions should be asked:

a. Is the course offered/taken in school, college/ university or NMYC? If in NMYC, the course is non-formal and therefore, will not be considered as post secondary education. If in school, college/university, the following question should be asked:

b. Is completion of high school course a requirement for admission? If yes, the course is considered formal.


Undergraduate post secondary students - refer to those who have taken a post secondary course at least a year but have not completed the course. For example, a person, who at the time of census, is a 2nd year student of a 2-year Automotive Technology. If he has finished his 1st year in Automotive Technology, he is considered as undergraduate post secondary student.

If the person has successfully completed his post secondary education, specify the title of the course/certificate completed and its corresponding duration on the space below the code boxes.

Examples:

2-Yr. Associate in Arts
2-Yr. Certificate in Physical Education
6-Mo. Basic Computer System
6-Mo. Auto Diesel Technology


Take note of the following cases:

1. If a person finished a post secondary course and is currently a 1st year college student, his post secondary course should be reported.

2. If a person is currently enrolled in a 6-month or 1-year post secondary course but has not finished the course, he should be reported as a high school graduate.

3. If a person is currently in 1st year college or post secondary, do not assume that he is only a high school graduate. Verify if he has taken/completed other courses (degree or non-degree courses).


Usually, it is difficult to differentiate certificate and diploma courses that are under post secondary education from post graduate courses. In order to determine whether the course reported by the respondent is a post secondary or post graduate course, the following question should be asked:

a. Is a baccalaureate or a college degree a requirement for admission to certificate or diploma course? If yes, the course is considered under post graduate course. Otherwise, it is classified as post secondary course.

Examples:

Certificate in Development Economics - post graduate course
Diploma in Population Communication - post graduate course
Diploma in Junior Secretarial - post secondary
Certificate in Agri-Business - post secondary


If the person is a college undergraduate, i.e., he has not earned a degree, enter the code for the year of his completed education as 3100 for 1st year college, 3400 for 4th year college, etc. Note that code 3500 stands for 5th or higher year in college, without earning a bachelor's degree.

The acquisition of a college degree implies the successful completion of a course study. Information on degree received should be collected only for persons who have completed a course study at the third level of education. Such information should include the title of the highest degree received, and an indication of the field of study if the title does not make it clear.

For a college graduate, enter in the space provided the specific Bachelor's or higher degree obtained.

Examples:

BS Commerce
BS Chemical Engineering
BS Math
Doctor of Medicine


For law or medical students who have earned a degree, e.g.., BS Political Science, BS Zoology, BS Med Tech, etc. but are still in law or medical school, report the specific degree obtained. The same rule applies to graduate students who are still working for their master's degree. For students taking doctorate studies, report master's degree completed, if any.

For those who have pursued and completed two or more degrees of the same level and duration, report only one degree or whichever degree the person preferred to be reported.

Verify from the respondent if a very high educational attainment in relation to the age of the person is reported. For example: 3rd year high school for a boy who is 13 years old or BS Commerce for a person who is 17 years old.

On the next page is the correct way of filling up items P13 to P22.

[Picture: Illustration 8.1 Filling up items P13 to P22 of CPH form 3]

Note: For persons below 10 years old in P5, end interview in P22. Draw a straight line from P23 to P35. P23 to P35 are no longer applicable for persons below 10 years old.

Highest Grade Completed (P11)

Highest grade completed refers to the highest grade or year completed in school, college or university as of September 1, 1995. This may be any one of the specific grades or years in elementary, high school, postsecondary school, college, and post-baccalaureate levels of schooling. It also includes pre-school education.

Ask the question in P11, "What is the highest grade/year completed by ___? " for all persons 5 years old and over. Enter in P11 the two-digit code corresponding to the highest grade completed which are given in the Codes Sheet.

If the answer given by the respondent is in terms of the level of schooling only (e.g., elementary, high school, college) and not the specific grade or year completed, determine the specific grade or year by asking the respondent additional questions. The answer "Elementary", "High School" or "College" is insufficient.

Examples:

1. Enter "11" if the person has only completed Grade 1, "13" for grade 3 and "22" for 2nd year high school.

2. If the person has not completed any grade at all, enter "00".

3. The code for pre-school is "01".


[p. 96 ]

4. A student who is enrolled in 2nd year high school at the time of the census has completed 1st year and should therefore be reported as 1st year high school - code "21".


Postsecondary 1 year is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken a postsecondary course for at least a year but has not yet completed the course at the time of the POPCEN. Consider, for example, a person who at the time of census is a 2nd year student of a 2-year course in Automotive Technology. Since he has finished his 1st year in Automotive Technology, he is considered under this category and the correct code is "31".

Postsecondary 2 years is the highest grade completed by a person who has successfully completed his postsecondary education. The appropriate code for this is "32".

In order to determine whether the vocational/technical course reported by the respondent is under postsecondary education (formal education) the following probing questions should be asked:

1. Is the course offered/taken in school, college/university or NMYC? If in NMYC, the course is non-formal and therefore, will not be considered as postsecondary education. If in school, college/ university, the following question should be asked:

2. Is completion of high school course a requirement for admission? If yes, the course is considered formal, hence, postsecondary. If the person is a college undergraduate, i.e., he has not earned a degree, enter the code for the year of his completed education as "41" for 1st year college, "44" for 4th year college, etc. Note that code "46" stands for 6th or higher year in college. If he has graduated from college but has never been enrolled in any post-baccalaureate course, the appropriate code will be 47.


Post-baccalaureate refers to any course for which an undergraduate degree is required. Masters and doctoral degree students and graduates fall under this category. In addition, law or medical students who have earned a degree, e.g., BS Political Science, BS Zoology, BS Med Tech, etc. but are still in law or medical school should also be considered under this category. The appropriate code for this educational level is "51". The same rule applies to graduate students who are still working for their master's degree and for [p.97] persons who have completed master's or doctoral degree. For both cases, enter "51".

If an unusually high 'highest grade completed' is reported in relation to the age of the person, verify the report from the respondent. For example: 3rd year high school for a boy who is 13 years old or college graduate for a person who is 17 years old.

P22 Highest educational attainment

Data on highest educational attainment furnish material for a comparison of the present educational equipment of the adult population with the present and anticipated future requirements of manpower for various types of economic activities.

Highest educational attainment refers to the highest grade or year completed in school, college or university as of May 1, 2000. This may be any one of the specific grades or years in elementary, high school, post secondary school, college and post-baccalaureate levels of schooling. It also includes pre-school education.

Ask the question in P22: "What is the highest grade/year completed by ___?" for all persons 5 years old and over. Enter in P22 the two-digit code corresponding to the highest educational attainment, which are listed in the Code Book.

If the answer given by the respondent is in terms of the level of schooling only (e.g., elementary, high school, college) and not the specific grade or year completed, determine the specific grade or year by asking the respondent additional questions. The answer "Elementary" or "High School" is insufficient.

Examples:

1. Enter 11 if the person has only completed Grade 1, 13 for Grade 3 or 22 for 2nd Year High School.
2. If the person has not completed any grade at all, enter 00.
3. The code for pre-school is 01.
4. A student who is enrolled in 2nd year high school at the time of the census has completed 1st year and should therefore be reported as 1st year high school - 21.


Report also in P22 the post secondary course that a person has completed. Post secondary course refers to the stage of formal education following the secondary education level covering non-degree programs that have varying duration lasting up to three years, concerned primarily with developing strong and appropriately trained middle level manpower.

Post Secondary 1 year is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken a post secondary course for at least a year but has not yet completed the course at the time of Census 2000. Consider, for example, a person who at the time of the census is a 2nd year student of a 2-year course in Automotive Technology. Since he has finished his 1st year in Automotive Technology, he is considered under this category and the correct code is 31.
Post Secondary 2 years is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken at least two year but has not yet completed the course at the time of Census 2000. The appropriate code for this is 32.

In order to determine whether the vocational/technical course reported by the respondent is under post secondary education (formal education) the following probing questions should be asked:

1. Is the course offered/taken in school, college/university or NMYC? If in
NMYC, the course is non-formal and therefore, will not be considered as post secondary education.

If in school, college/university the following question should be asked:

2. Is completion of high school course a requirement for admission? If yes, the course is considered formal, hence, post secondary.

If the person has successfully completed his post secondary education, enter the code of the course/certificate completed in the code boxes and specify its title and corresponding duration on the space provided. The codes (50 - 58) are provided in the Code Book.

Examples:

2-Yr. Associate in Art, code 50
2-Yr. Certificate in Physical Education, code 51
6-Mo. Basic Computer System, code 54
6-Mo. Auto Diesel Technology, code 56


Take note of the following cases:

1. If a person finished a post secondary course and is currently a 1st year college student, his post secondary course should be reported.

2. If a person is currently enrolled in a (6-month or 1-year) post secondary course but has not finished the course, he should be reported as a high school graduate.

3. If a person is currently in 1st year college or post secondary, do not assume that he is only a high school graduate. Verify if he has taken/completed other courses (degree or non-degree courses).

If the person is a college undergraduate, i.e., he has not earned a degree; enter the code for the year of his completed education as 41 for 1st year college, 44 for 4th year college, etc.

Note that code 46 stands for 6th or higher year in college. If he has graduated from college but has never been enrolled in any post-baccalaureate course, the appropriate code may either be 60 to 68, depending on the college course finished. Different categories are listed in the Code Book.

Usually, it is difficult to differentiate certificate and diploma courses that are under post secondary education from post-graduate courses. In order to determine whether the course reported by the respondent is a post secondary or post-graduate course, the following question should be asked:

Is a baccalaureate or a college degree a requirement for admission to certificate or diploma course? If yes, the course is considered under postgraduate course. Otherwise, it is classified as post secondary course.

Examples:

Certificate in Development Economics - post graduate course
Diploma in Population Communication - post graduate course
Diploma in Junior Secretarial - post secondary
Certificate in Agri-Business - post secondary


The acquisition of a college degree implies the successful completion of a course study. Information on degree received should be collected only for persons who have completed a course study at the third level of education. Such information should include the title of the highest degree received, and an indication of the field of study if the title does not make it clear.
For a college graduate, enter the corresponding code of the specific Bachelor's or higher degree obtained. The codes (60 - 68) are provided in the Code Book.

Examples:

B.S. Commerce, code 63
B.S. Chemical Engineering, code 65
B.S. Math, code 64

For those who have pursued and completed two or more degrees of the same level and duration, report only one degree or whichever degree the person preferred to be reported.

Post-baccalaureate refers to any course for which an under graduate degree is required. Masters and doctoral degree students and graduates fall under this category. In addition, law or medical students who have earned a degree, e.g., BS Political Science, BS Zoology, BS Med. Tech., etc. but are still in law or medical school should also be considered under this category. The appropriate code for this educational level is 71. The same rule applies to graduate students who are still working for their master's degree, taking doctorate studies and for a person who have completed masters or doctoral degree. For both cases enter 71.

If an unusually high "highest educational attainment" is reported in relation to the age of the person, verify the report from the respondent. For example: 3rd year high school for a boy who is 13 years old or college graduate for a person who is 17 years old.

Columns P13, P14 and P16 are to be accomplished only for household members five years old and over. Thus, if a household member is less than five years old leave columns P13, P14 and P16 blank.

P16-Highest Grade/Year Completed
Data on highest grade/year completed furnish information for a comparison of the present educational qualification of the population with the present and anticipated future requirements of manpower for various types of economic activities.
Highest grade/year completed refers to the highest grade or year completed in school, college, or university as of May 1, 2010. This may be any one of the specific grades or years in elementary, high school, post-secondary school, college, and post baccalaureate levels of schooling. It also includes preschool education.
Ask the respondent, "What is the highest grade/year completed by [the respondent]?" for all persons five years old and over.
Write the grade/year level of schooling completed on the space provided and the appropriate codes in the boxes. The codes for highest grade/year completed can be found at the bottom of page 2C. For graduates of post-secondary course or college degree, write on the space provided the specific course or degree obtained. This will be coded during manual processing at the Provincial Office.
An answer such as elementary, high school, or college is insufficient. Determine the specific grade or year by asking the respondent additional question, "What particular grade in elementary/year in high school or college did complete?"

Examples: If the person has completed Grade 1, write "grade l" on the space provided and enter "210" in the boxes.
If the person has not completed any grade at all, write "no grade completed" on the space provided and enter "000" in the boxes.
If the person finished nursery, write "nursery" on the space provided and enter "010" in the boxes. Preschool includes nursery, kindergarten, and preparatory school.
A student who is enrolled in 2nd year high school at the time of the census has completed 1st year and should be reported as 1st year high school -- code "310"
.

Note that for an elementary graduate, meaning he/she finished Grade 6 or Grade 7, as the case may be, the code should be "280". For a high school graduate, meaning he/she finished 4th Year High School, the code should be "350".
Report also in Column P16 the post-secondary course that a person has completed.
Post-secondary course refers to the stage of formal education following the secondary education level covering non-degree programs that have varying duration lasting up to three years. This course is concerned primarily with developing strong and appropriately trained middle level manpower.
Post-secondary 1st year is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken a post-secondary course for at least a year but has not yet completed the course at the time of the 2010 CPH. Consider, for example, a person who at the time of the census is a 2nd year student of a two-year course in Automotive Technology. Since he/she has finished his/her 1st year in Automotive Technology, he/she is considered under this category and the correct code is "410".
Post-secondary 2nd year is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken post-secondary course for at least two years but has not yet completed the course at the time of the 2010 CPH. The appropriate code for this is "420".
Post-secondary 3rd year is the highest grade completed by a person who has taken post-secondary course for at least three years but has not yet completed the course at the time of the 2010 CPH. The appropriate code for this is "430".
In order to determine whether the vocational/technical course reported by the respondent is under a post-secondary education (formal education), the following probing questions should be asked:

Is the course offered/taken in school, college/university, or Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)? If the course is taken in TESDA, the course is non-formal and, therefore, will not be considered as post-secondary education.

If the course is taken in a school, college or university, this question should be asked:

Is completion of a high school course a requirement for admission? If yes, the course is considered formal, hence, post-secondary
.

If the person has successfully completed his/her post-secondary education, specify its title and corresponding duration on the space provided. This will be coded during manual processing at the Provincial Office.
Examples

[] 2-Year Associate in Arts
[] 2-Year Certificate in Physical Education
[] 6-Month Basic Computer System
[] 6-Month Auto Diesel Technology

Take note of the following cases:

If a person finished a post-secondary course and is currently a 1st year college student, his/her post-secondary course should be reported.
If a person is currently enrolled in a 6-month or 1-year post-secondary course but has not finished the course yet, he/she should be reported as a high school graduate.
If a person is currently in 1st year college or post-secondary, do not assume that he/she is only a high school graduate. Verify if he/she has taken/completed other courses (degree or non-degree courses).

If the person is a college undergraduate, that is, he/she has not yet earned a degree, enter the code of the year he/she has completed -- "810" for 1st year college, "840" for 4th year college, and others. Note that code "860" stands for 6th or higher year in college.
Usually, it is difficult to differentiate certificate and diploma courses that are under post-secondary education from post graduate courses. In order to determine whether the course reported by the respondent is a post-secondary or a post graduate course, this question should be asked:
Is a baccalaureate or college degree a requirement for admission to certificate or diploma course? If yes, the course is considered under post graduate course. Otherwise, it is classified as post-secondary course. [Examples omitted.]

The acquisition of a college degree implies the successful completion of a course study. Information on degree received should be collected only for persons who have completed a course study at the third level of education. Such information should include the title of the highest degree received, and an indication of the field of study if the title does not make it clear.
For a college graduate, write on the space provided the specific Bachelor's degree obtained. This will also be coded during manual processing at the Provincial Office. Examples: BS Commerce, BS Chemical Engineering, BS Statistics.
For those who have pursued and completed two or more degrees of the same level and duration, say, nursing and medical technology (both are 4-year courses), report only one degree or whichever degree the person prefers to be reported.
Post baccalaureate course refers to any course for which an undergraduate degree is required. Masters and doctoral degree students and graduates both fall under this category. In instances where law or medical students have usually earned a degree in AB Political Science, BS Zoology, BS Medical Technology, and others, but are still in law or medical school, the appropriate code for this educational level is "900" for post baccalaureate. The same rule applies to students who are still working on their master's degree, taking doctorate studies and for a person who has already completed masters or doctoral degree. For both cases, enter "900".
If an unusually high "highest grade/year completed" is reported in relation to the age of the person, verify the report from the respondent. For example: 3rd year high school for a boy/girl who is 11 years old, or college graduate for a person who is 15 years old, put a remark if this person had been accelerated.

C. Questions asked to all residents aged 6 years or more (questions from P16 to P25)


These questions aim at knowing the activities related to education and employment for persons aged 6 years or more [the French text says more than 6 years].

Children aged less than 6 years are not concerned with questions from P16 to P25.


P17: Level of education

1. If for question P16 the number "1" was circled, this means that the enumerated person is still studying or has attended school. On P17, on the dotted line, one will write the type of school for the last class completed or the current class, by following the abbreviations marked below the question to be asked; one will add the number corresponding to the last class completed successfully; one will take this opportunity to identify the type of school involved. This last class occurs in various types of schools.

[p.39]

PR 0-8: Primary schools
PP 1-3: Complementary schools
FP 1-7: Vocational schools
FT 1-7: Technical schools
EG 1-7: General school (e.g. secondary school)
SU 1-9: Schools for higher education, and universities

Write:

PR. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a primary school.
Example: the person has completed with success five years, and is currently in the sixth year of the primary school:
write "PR5" .

PP. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a complementary school. (Cerar, Cerai, Familiale, Menagere).
(Complementary schools for housewives, maids, and so forth)
Example: the person has completed with success the second year, and is currently in the third year in a complementary school:
write "PP2".

FP. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a vocational school.
Example: the person has completed with success the third year, and is currently in the fourth year in a vocational school:
write "FP3".

FT. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a technical school.
Example: The person has completed with success the fourth year, and is currently in the fifth year in a technical school:
write "FT4".

EG. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a general secondary school.
Example: the person has completed with success the fifth year, and is currently in the sixth year in a secondary school:
write "EG5".
[The French text says EG2 instead]

SU. . .: On the dotted line, one adds the number of years completed with success in a school for higher education or a university.

[p.40]

Example: the person has completed the first university cycle, that is to say 2 or 3 years with success: write: "SU2" or "SU3". For a person who has completed (the cycle) with success, or is in the fourth year in a school for higher education write "SU3". For a person who has completed the second year of university with success, or is in the third year write "SU2".

Remark:
If the person attended several schools of different type, one will write that in which he/she completed the secondary year.

If he/she failed the first year of primary school, one will write: "PR0".

Columns P19 - P21) -- Education and literacy (Persons age 6 or older)


P20 -- Highest level attained
116. This question is applicable only to respondents who, in P19, answered that they had been or were still in school. It does not apply to persons who never went to school.

117. Ask: "What is the highest level that he/she attained?" i.e. highest grade/level completed). Record the appropriate code (refer to the code list).

118. If a person went to a primary school or is still attending primary school, state the level or highest class he/she has passed. His or her present class is not the highest class passed. For example, if respondent is in class 4, the highest level attained is class 3 and therefore enter 05 [or 23] in the appropriate column.

119. Similarly if the respondent is in JSS 1, the highest class passed is class 6 and therefore enter code 08 [or 26] in the column relating to that respondent. The technique here is that the highest class passed at all levels is the class immediately below the present class of the person.

120. A University undergraduate with no other qualification other than completed secondary, will have code 10 [or 41] recorded.

Question P-17 -- Level of education
Ask for all persons aged 5 years and over.

Question 17 has two parts, 17 and 17a. Only those people who indicate that they have a post-school qualification in Question 17 will answer 17a.

P-17 "What is the highest level of education that (the person) has completed?"

Read the categories to the respondent.

In this question we are interested in the highest level of education that the person has completed, not the level they are currently studying. Thus a pupil at school who is in Grade 9 has completed Grade 8.

Note that formal schooling starts from Grade 1, while Grade 0 means the year just before Grade 1, that is, the last year of pre-school. If currently in Grade 0, write "99". For a child currently in Grade 1, write "00" or "99", depending on whether the child attended Grade 0 or not.

If the person has not attended school, this should also be recorded as "99".

Diplomas and certificates must be at least six months full-time study or equivalent. NTC 1 stands for the National Technical Certificate on first year level. Probe about post-school diplomas/certificates. If a person say that he/she has completed a certificate or diploma, like MCSE, computer or secretarial courses, or a course in typing, welding, etc, ask how long it took to complete.

The next question, 17a, concerns the field of post-school education so some people will skip this question:
If the respondent chose one of the codes in the first column skip P-17a and go to P-18.
If the respondent chose one of the codes in the second column, other than 21 or 22, go to P-17a.

7. Section E: Education (remember to follow instructions)
Purpose: This section collects information regarding the knowledge and skills in the country.

This section must be completed for every person listed on the questionnaire aged 5 years and older.
All persons attending school (P-17) must answer questions on educational institution (P-18).
Level of education should be the highest level completed by the person, not what is currently being attended.
E.g. if a child is currently attending grade 4, then the child's highest level of education is grade 3.
If someone has completed grade 12, and is currently doing their last year before graduating with a degree/diploma, then their highest level of education is Grade 12.
P-21, if a person has a diploma or degree (from university or technikon or college), they should answer from option 01 to 22. Those who have qualifications from FET colleges should answer options 23 to 36.
f. Example - Education (below):
No response is expected for Adam because he is younger than 5 and this question addresses people that are 5 years and older.
Diana's highest level of education is a Bachelor's degree, hence her choice of option 25 (Note the skip to P-21).
Francinah only has Grade 2 as her highest level of education (Note the skip to P-22).

[Figure omitted, example]
g. Example - Education cont. (below):

The question on field of education (P-21) is to be answered by people who have post- school qualifications.
NOTE: options 01 to 22 are for people with qualifications from a university or technikon while options 23 to 36 are for people with qualifications from FET colleges.
Diana is the only person in the household who should complete this question.
Diana reports that her degree is in health care (option 09).

[Figure omitted, example]
h. Example - Education cont. (below):

Household members who are 5 years and older, without any formal education and those with primary education (up to grade 7) (P-20) must complete this question.
Francinah is the only person in the household who can complete this question.
Francinah reported that she has some difficulty in writing her name, a lot of difficulty in reading, she is unable to complete a form, some difficulty in writing a letter and that she is unable to read road signs and calculate change.
Only codes 1 to 5 can be written in the boxes provided.

3.4 For studying in the Bachelor's Degree level, some aspects of study assigned several curricula for students to select, such as 4 years curriculums for those who finished high schools (secondary school 6). Alternatively, there are 2 years curricula for those who finished the diploma or Higher Vocational Education Program, etc. In order to record the class or year of finishing education, in the case of 4 years or 2 years curriculum:

Record according to the regulation as mentioned earlier and specify the number of years required of that particular curriculum, such as year 1, Bachelor's Degree (two years curriculum) or record it as equivalent to 4 years curriculum year 3 Bachelor's Degree.

Caution: In recording the class or year of finishing the study: if it is not the class or year required for completion of a particular educational level, the class or year recorded must be less than the number of years required for completion of that educational level.

For example:
In the Vocational Education Program where there are 3-year curricula, the class or year at which a person finished must be recorded as year 2 Vocational Education Program. However, if a person completed year 3 Vocational Education Program, it must be recorded as certificate of Vocational Education, or Cert. Voc. Ed.

In the case of the Bachelor's Degree where there is a 4-year curriculum, the class or year at which a person finished must not be higher than year 3 Bachelor's Degree, even though that person spent more than 3 years studying. If record 4 years Bachelor's Degree, this means that a person already graduated or obtained a qualification from that particular educational level. In the latter case, record the name or the abbreviation of the degree. For the Bachelor's Degree that has more than 4-year curricula, record the highest year of education and write the number of years of the curriculum in parenthesis.

4. For those who graduated abroad, if the education level is basic:

Compare it with the Thai system of primary education (Pathom Suksa) or secondary education (Mathayom Suksa).

If the system is difficult to compare:

Specify the number of years of study in the basic education system.

For those who graduated from the vocational education, teacher training, and university

Record the name of the certificate, diploma, or degree received and write the equivalent of the Thai educational level in parenthesis.


[p. 100]

5. For those who received a certificate, diploma or degree at the same level but with different qualifications.

Record only one degree. However, if a person receives several degrees of the different levels, record only the highest degree.

6. For those who study religion

Record the religious qualification and the highest education level that the person attained, [putting] the non-religious qualification in parenthesis, such as:

Third grade religion

(Primary school 4)

Second grade religion

(Bachelor's Degree)

Buddhism Theology 4

(Vocational Education)

Buddhism Theology 9

(Secondary School 3)

7. For those who finished the Adult Educational Program:

Record the educational level at which a person passed the exam, such as level 3. Alternatively, record by comparing with the basic educational program, such as level 4 is equivalent to secondary school 3, then record secondary school 3, etc.

8. Never been educated, never finished any years, or never included in no class education (such as studying from the monk, studying the Chinese language, studying in the language institute in which the level of education cannot be identified, etc.)

Record "Never".

9. For the person who does not know anything related to his/her education"

Record "X"

Education

The questions on education concern educational attendance (column P16) and the level of instruction (columns P17 and P18). They are addressed to the resident population aged 3 and over and all those born before November 2007. For children under 3 or those born after November 2007, put a dash on the dotted lines. Check to this end column P06, that is, the date of birth or the age.

Column P17: Cycle attained

Column P17 concerns the cycle attained or the current cycle of the person surveyed. To all persons aged 3 or more who currently attend, that is P16 = 1 (FA) or who have once gone P16 = 2 (AF), pose the following question: "What is the level of instruction attained by [the respondent]?" Record the code corresponding to the response according to the modalities below:

[p. 34]

0 EM = Nursery school
1 PRIM = Primary
2 SEC1 = First cycle of secondary (6th, 5th, 4th, and 3rd)
3 SEC2 = Second cycle of secondary (2nd, 1st, and Terminal)
4 FPCC = Short cycle professional training
5 ETCL = Long cycle technical education
6 ES = Higher education (university)
7 EP = Professional school
8 Other (specify)

Record the abbreviation corresponding to the response declared on the dotted lines and the corresponding code in the appropriate box.

NB 26:

- It is possible that the declaration of the respondent does not correspond to any of the responses proposed. The name of the last school attended will allow you to know the cycle attained.
- In addition to University, Higher Education also covers schools entered with the level BAC II. Such as the schools of BTS, EAMAU, École Normale Supérieure (ENS), Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA), Ecole Nationale des Instituteurs (ENI), Ecole Nationale des Sages-femmes (ENSF), Ecole Nationale des Auxiliaires Médicaux (ENAM), Ecole de Formation des Officiers des Forces Armées Togolaise (EFOFAT), Ecole Nationale de Formation Sociale (ENFS), Institut National de Jeunesse et Sport (INJS) and the Institut Africaine d'Informatique Togo (IAI-Togo).
- Professional schools are schools entered with a level below BAC II, such as the Ecole des Aides-Infirmiers de SOKODE.

Column P18: Last class attended

Column P18 concerns the last class followed by the person surveyed.

For those currently attending, record on the dotted lines the current class and for those who have attended, record the last class followed on the dotted lines and record nothing in the grey box.

NB 27: Take into account conventional school only. The latter excludes biblical and Koranic schools, training received in workshops of apprenticeship (informal sector: hairdressing, dressmaking, joinery, masonry, and so on). However, the conventional school does include technical or professional training received in apprenticeship centers such as: Centre Régional d'Enseignement Technique et de Formation Professionnelle (CRETFP), Centre d'Enseignement Technique (CET), Centre de Formation Technique et Professionnelle (CFTP), Centre d'Enseignement Artistique et Artisanal (CEAA) and private training centers (ANCILA, STYLE TAHITI, EANICK - EYAMOD).

[p. 35]

- For those who state that they have attended an educational system other than the Togolese system (Anglophone system for example), you should try to record in full on the dotted lines the declaration (last class attended) of the respondent.

Columns P19 to P23 concern literacy and the economic activity and only concern resident persons aged 6 and over (check the age in column P06). For children under 6, put dashes.
