(ASCED 2001)

This data item describes the highest year of school completed by someone. It does not include any unfinished years of schooling in which a student maybe currently enrolled (see Educational attendance [EDUSTATC]).

It is based on the Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED), 2001 (cat. no. 1272.0).

This item was not collected in the monthly Labour Force Survey (LFS), but was collected in the following supplementary surveys and appended to the longitudinal data.
    • Education and Work, Australia (SEW, cat. no. 6227.0)
        Every May from seven-eighths of the LFS sample aged 15 to 64 years in 2008 and 15 to 74 years in 2009 and 2010.

    • Underemployed Workers, Australia (UEW, cat. no. 6265.0)
        Every September from underemployed workers in seven-eighths of the LFS sample

    • Labour Mobility, Australia (LMS, cat. no. 6209.0)
        February every 2 years from seven-eighths of the LFS sample

    • Multipurpose Household Survey, Australia (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0)
        Every month from a selected person per household in the out-going group of the LFS (the one-eighth of the LFS sample that has been in the survey for the full 8 months)

        Note: Information obtained in the MPHS is always collected via a personal interview, and so does not relate to the data item Respondent detail [RESPTYPC], which only relates to the data items collected in the LFS and other supplementary surveys.
