Codes and Frequencies
YRSCHLTG reports the highest class or year of education the female respondent completed at the highest level of schooling achieved, as reported in EDUCLVLTG. This variable is country-specific to Togo.
YRSCHLTG has no comparability problems.
Because YRSCHLTG 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.
