Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

For use in Prisoner health data collections. If this value domain is used with other metadata then 'Unknown' would map to code 8.

Highest level of schooling includes study at a secondary education level which might, for example, be undertaken at a Technical and Further Education (TAFE) institution (ABS, 2002).

Record the code for the highest year of schooling completed, regardless of the institution or location where that study took place. If a year of schooling had been commenced but not completed, the code for the year below should be used.

Only one option may be selected.
