EDYRTOTAL (V133) reports the woman's education level in single years. This variable is constructed from responses to EDUCLVL (V106) and YRSCHL (V107) as follows:

If EDUCLVL = "No education," EDYRTOTAL = "0"

If EDUCLVL = "Primary," EDYRTOTAL = YRSCHL

If EDUCLVL = "Secondary," EDYRTOTAL = YRSCHL + x

If EDUCLVL = "Higher," EDYRTOTAL = YRSCHL + y

If EDUCLVL = "Missing," EDYRTOTAL = "Missing"

In the above equations, "x" equals the number of years needed to complete primary education, and "y" equals the number of years needed to complete primary and secondary education. The values of "x" and "y" are country-specific.
