EDYEARS (HV108) reports the household member's education in single completed years. This variable is constructed from responses to EDLEVEL (HV106) and EDLEVYR (HV107), as follows:
If EDLEVEL = "No education," EDYEARS = "0"
If EDLEVEL = "Primary," EDYEARS = EDLEVYR
If EDLEVEL = "Secondary," EDYEARS = EDLEVYR + x
If EDLEVEL = "Higher," EDYEARS = EDLEVYR + y
If EDLEVEL = "Missing," EDYEARS = "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.
