Highest Education Attained

The longitudinal register is produced once a year and the entire period is thus calculated in the same way. Based on the longitudinal register, a status register is produced with the population per. September 30 that year. In the event of significant changes in the way the longitudinal register is produced, the status registers for all years will be reproduced. It happens that an education changes level from one year to the next. Typically, this will not cause a reproduction of all the status registers and therefore affect comparability over time. Labor force survey provide information too Eurostat about the educational attainment level and this is these figures that are used for international comparison of the attainment level.
