Daycare, nursery school, or preschool: these are public and private centers where children between 0 and 5 years of age attend. These exclude the CEN CINAI.
Kindergarten : this is understood as attending the grade prior to the first year of elementary school
Elementary or secondary school: this is the attendance to a regular day or night education center of an academic or technical elementary, middle or high school
Open education (exams before the MEP): this is attendance to an institution of elementary or secondary education but under programs adapted for taking exams before the MEP. These have a different duration from that established in the formal education.
It is considered that a person attends the "open education" if he/she is properly registered and regularly attends some center or program. Some of the most common are: IPEC, CINDEA, New
Opportunities, home teacher, and private institutions.
This does not include the people that are registered in the MEP to take exams but prepare themselves alone or pay a separate professor. This does not include people that attend technical education centers like the National Institute of Learning (INA) or schools of commercial training of computation, language, free courses or others that give short courses.
University prep school: this refers to the institutions of superior education recognized by the National Council of Superior Education and whose principal objective is to offer short courses, of two or three years for people graduated from secondary education, from where they receive a diploma.
University: this refers to public and private institutions recognized as such by the National Council of Superior Education where high school, undergraduate, masters, specialty, and doctorate titles are obtained.
Special education: this is composed of the people that attend schools of special education or centers of specialized education for the people that present some permanent limitation of physical or intellectual disability.
Day center for the elderly: these are centers of care to which adult people attend for a few hours to receive food and recreation services, among others. These do not include institutions or homes where the people live, but rather only those that function during the day.
This variable indicates whether the respondent attended school at the time of the census.
