Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
This refers to the highest level of education successfully completed. If a person attended 3 months of the first year of secondary school but did not complete the year, the option “primary school” will be recorded. If a person only attended a few years of primary school or never went to school, the option “less than primary school” will be recorded.
The level of education can either be completed at school or at home. This may be the case of someone who, due to illness or other circumstances, does not attend school but has private tutoring or some other form of schooling that requires taking exams in order to complete primary or secondary education.
If countries use educational categories other than those specified here, they must provide WHO with a mapping of those to the categories as stated in the questionnaire. The same categories must be used for Column D of the household roster and Q 0918.
