NoteAs some people would have obtained qualifications reported in last Wave after the start of the interview period (1st Sept.), some double counting in this Wave is possible. Care should be taken when combining qualifications across Waves. See Usage Notes in Vol. A. The highest current educational and academic qualifications are given in derived variables BQFEDHI and BQFACHI. Vocational qualifications are flagged in BQFVOC.
