Qualifications (Scotland)

Definition

This is a multi-tick question asking the person to identify all qualifications obtained. Respondents are asked to tick all boxes that apply.

During processing, the answers to the tick boxes are held in a compound field consisting of 0s and 1s. In order to produce a ‘count’ of qualifications held, separate variables are provided on the final output database for each qualification group represented by each tick box.

Different questions are asked in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to reflect local requirements. See also the derived variable - Highest Level Qualifications (HLQPUK).
