Education summaries VCF0140 and VCF0140a should be corrected as follows:
* YEARS 2000,2008 ;
    if VCF0004 eq 2008       and VCF0140  eq 4 then VCF0140  = 5 ;
    if VCF0004 in(2000,2008) and VCF0140a eq 4 then VCF0140a = 5 ;
* YEAR 2004 ;
    if VCF0004 eq 2004 and VCF0140 eq 7 then do ;
       VCF0140a = 7 ;
       VCF0140  = 6 ;
    end ;
2000,2008 NOTE:
After 1984, no data from the time series has corresponded to category 4 in VCF0140 / VCF0140a (HS diploma plus non-academic training); cases currently coded 4 should have been included in code 5.
2004 NOTE:
Code 7 'Advanced degree' is a valid category in VCF0140a but is not a valid category in VCF0140 (which includes advanced degree cases in code 6 'BA degree and higher'); without correction, code 7 currently appears as a separate category in VCF0140 rather than VCF0140a.
