|Description:||Education summary VCF0140 and VCF0140a corrections|
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.
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.
