Highest Level of Schooling Completed (HSCP)

This variable records the highest level of primary or secondary school a person has completed. The data are used to help build a picture of the education levels in each area of Australia and to assist planning of educational facilities.

Highest Level of Schooling Completed is new for the 2001 Census and is classified to the Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED), released in 2001. Previous censuses requested information on age left school.
