Derived Variable Note

Current status highest educational or vocational qualification. The information is updated each year to include the most recent qualifications of new entrants and existing panel members. The last highest qualification derived variable is fed forward and then updated with new qualifications obtained. From Wave 2 onward this also includes information fed forward from the BHPS. Note that not all respondents were ever asked the highest educational qualification question (QFHIGH); the group is mainly comprised of BHPS respondents and Rising 16's who had a youth interview in Wave 1 and were incorrectly routed out of the initial conditions module in Wave 2. From Wave 6 onwards it also includes members of the IEMB sample who provided an adult interview and reported that their highest qualification was obtained abroad (see F_QFHIGHOTH and F_ISCED11_DV). Highest qualifications (see QFHIGH_DV, NQFHIGH_DV and HIQUAL_DV) may be picked up through QUALNEW or TRQUAL for these groups but may be additional to pre-existing (potentially higher) qualifications. The variable QFHIGHFL_DV flags whether a respondent has ever been asked the initial conditions highest qualification question (QFHIGH).
