Educational Institution: Attendee Status (TYSTAP)

This variable combines responses from Type of Educational Institution Attending, Full-Time/Part Time Student Status and Age to indicate a person's attendee status at an educational institution. This variable is applicable to persons attending an educational institution.

How this variable is created

This variable is derived using responses captured from the Type of Educational Institution Attending, Full-Time/Part Time Student Status and the Age question on the Census form.

Variable history

Educational Institution: Attendee Status was first created for the 2011 Census.

This question was unchanged for 2016.

Non-response rate

Non-response rate only applies to data items that directly reflect responses to individual Census form questions. Educational Institution: Attendee Status does not have a non-response rate as it is a derived value created during Census processing for applicable persons.

For more information, refer to Understanding Census data quality.
