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). This publication is due for release around July 2001.
ASCED is designed for a wide range of purposes, and the information received from the census is not detailed enough to allow coding to the lowest level of the classification. Therefore standard census products will be available at the two digit ASCED level, and some three digit information may be available upon request.
