  • About this Release


Designed to classify post-school educational qualifications by level of attainment and field of study. It was developed specifically to classify data on qualifications collected in the 1991 Census of Population and Housing and is used in other ABS collections. This publication was developed to enable a four-digit code (level of attainment and field of study) to be assigned to information about a particular qualification to produce statistics compatible with those produced by the ABS. It comprises a training guide, coding indexes and a guide to resolving queries. Users should refer to 1262.0 when interpreting statistics coded to this classification.

Also available is the ABSCQ coding index and valid output codes on floppy disk (1265.0.15.001). The disk contains the coding index as presented in 1265.0, together with a list of valid output codes for level of attainment and field of study. It also includes a matrix of valid level of attainment and field of study combinations. These valid output codes are not published elsewhere.
