Type of Educational Institution Attending (TYPP)

This variable identifies the type of educational institution being attended by people who are full/part-time students. The categories cover pre-school through to tertiary institutions.

Users of the data on pre-school attendance should be aware that some children who are in child-care may be included in the pre-school figures. This has been identified as a problem with interpretation of categories by respondents.

Information on whether a person is attending an educational institution is essential for education and labour market planning. It is also used to identify dependent children in family coding. See also Full/Part-Time Student Status (STUP), Educational qualification.
