Description

YRSCHLLS reports the number of years of education the respondent completed at the highest level of schooling achieved, as reported in EDUCLVLLS. This variable is country-specific to Lesotho.

Comparability

YRSCHLLS has no comparability problems.

Because YRSCHLLS 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.

Comparability - Standard DHS

A question about the highest year of education the respondent has completed is included in every phase of the standard DHS questionnaire. YRSCHLLS is a country-specific variable.
