Non-School Qualification: Level of Education (QALLP)
This variable describes the level of education of the highest completed non-school qualification (e.g. bachelor degree, diploma).
The full classification for levels of education and fields of study, together with an explanation of the conceptual basis of the classification, can be found in the publication Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED) (cat. no. 1272.0) released in 2001.
ASCED is designed for a wide range of purposes and contains levels of detail which are not obtainable from Census data. ASCED level of education categories for which data are available are listed in the classifications section of this dictionary.
