Codes and Frequencies
YRSCHLBJ reports the number of years of education the female respondent completed at the highest level of schooling achieved, as reported in EDUCLVLBJ. This variable is country-specific to Benin.
YRSCHLBJ has no comparability problems.
Because YRSCHLBJ reports the number of years of schooling at the level achieved, "4 years" does not mean 4 years total, but 4 years at whichever level of education the respondent achieved. Thus, a code of 4 could indicate 4 years of primary school, a high school degree, or a bachelor's degree, for example. Users should consult the Survey Text tab for exact question wording and surrounding questions.
