ACS Educational Attainment Variable SCHL of Data Dictionary for Survey Year 1999-2004 Public Use Microdata Sample Files

Component ID: #ti1870443385

The data dictionary shows incorrect category labels for the educational attainment variable (SCHL). The educational attainment question changed on the 1999 ACS questionnaire, which changed the response categories and eliminated the choice of "Vocational, technical, or business school degree." The PUMS data dictionary incorrectly shows labels for categories 10 and 11 as "Some college, but no degree" and "Vo/Tech/Bus school degree," respectively. The correct data dictionary labels for categories 10 and 11 are "Some college, but less than 1 year" and "1 or more years of college, no degree," respectively.
