Codes and Frequencies
HUSEDLVLJO reports the highest level of school, within the Jordan educational system, that the respondent's most recent husband attended. This variable is country-specific to Jordan.
In addition to universe differences, HUSEDLVLJO differs across samples in the available response categories. These differences are largely due to changes in the Jordanian educational system.
To maximize comparability across samples, IPUMS-DHS uses composite coding for this variable. For example, all levels of secondary schooling share a common first digit of "2"; the second digit distinguishes between the old and new secondary school systems; and the third digit provides additional detail within these categories.
