YRSCHLGN reports the highest class or year of education the female respondent completed at the highest level of schooling achieved within the Guinean education system, as reported in EDUCLVLGN. This variable is country-specific to Guinea.


YRSCHLGN has no comparability problems.

Because YRSCHLGN reports the number of years of schooling at the highest 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.
