  1. Microdata on education level Dominique van Roon Team socio-economic state d.vanroon@cbs.nl

  2. The Educational Attainment File (EAF)= SSB-component HOOGSTEOPL • Contains highest attained education level for greater part of population in the Netherlands • Is based on information from both registers and a series of LFS’s • Can be used for estimates of education levels in even small subpopulations, providedreliability is good enough, and as background variable in multivariate analyses. Microdata on education level

  3. Situation in the Netherlands • No complete register of certificatesavailable, onlypartial information • For groups of people (e.g. majorityolderpeople and peopleeducatedabroad) no information on education availablefrom education registers  survey information necessary Microdata on education level

  4. Data sources used for Education Archive High qualityadministrative information is available on • highereducation: 1986… • student grants: 1995 … • exams in generalsecondaryeducation: 1999… • secondary general education: 2003… • secondary vocational education: 2004… • Recently also primary education (from 2008/’09, but not yet used in our process) Microdata on education level

  5. In addition • Education careersfromLFS’s: 1996 … • Education careersfromjob-seekers: 2004 … In particularnecessaryforolderpeople & immigrants. In TOTAL: 96 million records in Education Archive up to 2011, Updated annually. Data on e.g.studycode, study phase, start & end date, result of exams Microdata on education level

  6. The educational attainment file (EAF) 9 million records in EAF 2010 • CBS personal number (RIN) • Standard code of highest education programmecompletedwithcertificate • Standard code of highest education programmenot necessarilycompletedwithcertificate • weight Microdata on education level

  7. Weighting • Coverage shows selectivity: young people overrepresented • Weighting is necessary to correct for selectivity • The registers integrally describe a specific subpopulation: weight = 1 • Reweight records of Labour Force Survey, so that weights add up to remaining (non-register) population  LFS-records: weight <> 1 • Weights sum to the total Dutch population Microdata on education level

  8. AFTER weighting BEFORE weighting R E S T P O P U L A T I O N P O P U L A T I O N 16,6 mln 8,5 mln LFS LFS 0,9 mln Education registers Education registers 5,8 mln Imputation0-14 Imputation0-14 2,4 mln Microdata on education level

  9. Standard codes of educationcanbeconvertedinto education levels, e.g., - lower-intermediate-higher level of education - levels of more detailed CBS-classification - SOI (dutch: Standaard Onderwijs Indeling) - ISCED (Internat. Standard Class. of Education) Microdata on education level

  10. Coverage of EAF 2010 Microdata on education level

  11. How to use the Educational Attainment File • Combine withother registers • Example: • Multivariate analyses Use weight (and reweight if necessary) to get the official number of social security benefit recipients Integral dataset of social security benefit recipients EA F Social security benefit recipientsforwhominformation on educationalattainment is available + = Microdata on education level

  12. Reliability Because level of education is partly based on LFS one is faced with sample margins. An Excel-tool is available (and preferrably should be used) to check whether cell outcome can be published or not. Microdata on education level

  13. Example (1) 2518= part of Zeeheldenkwartier, part of Regentessekwartier, The Hague 3206= part of De Akkers, Spijkenisse Microdata on education level

  14. Example (2) Microdata on education level

  15. Availability • Now: Educational attainment files 1999-2010 • This year (in september): EAF 2011 • Ambition to developprovisional EAF 2012 • Reference date last friday of September Microdata on education level
