DISCED-15, Level of education, completed educations v. 1.0:-2017

Name:

DISCED-15, Level of education, completed educations v. 1.0:-2017

Description:

DISCED-15 is an overall classification that organizes programs and education programs in four independent dimensions: Main Area, Type of Education, Level of education and Field og education.

DISCED-15 has been developed to support comparability of education statistics - both at national and international level.Thus, DISCED-15 must be able to serve as a useful classification system across statistics-producing authorities in the education sector in Denmark, while ensuring a clear connection to the international classification system ISCED. In order to ensure flexibility, the DISCED-15 classification is based on a "building block approach" where the main area, education type, level and field of education are independent variables.

Level of education in DISCED-15 is a dimension that ensures consistency between the level classification of the Danish education system and the international education classification, ISCED2011. The Level of education in DISCED-15 is based on the same basic principles as Level in ISCED2011.
