School Variable - IPUMS Nigeria

I am interested in the "School" Variable, Nigeria 2010 which is below:


Do you or did you attend any educational institution?

Ask each question each time in the order given (Currently attending? Not attending, but used to attend? etc.), and upon receiving an affirmative response, mark the appropriate box and go on to question number 10.

[] 1 Currently attending?
[] 2 Not attending, but used to attend?
[] 3 Never attended?
[] 4 Unanswered I would like to know if the "not attending, but used to attend" is a combination of cases who have dropped out and who have completed a particular level of education? This is because i am interested in cases that are [] 1 Currently attending?
[] 2 Dropped out
[] 3 Never attended? Will appreciate insight on this. Thank you!

This variable (SCHOOL) is available though IPUMS-International. This variable is constructed from two variables: NG2010A_0443 (enrolled in school, 2010-2011) and NG2010A_0433 (ever enrolled in school). Here is a link to the 2010 Nigeria household survey. Let us know if you have any additional questions.

Given your detailed interest in educational attainment, dropping out, completion, etc. the unharmonized education variables may be useful because there are several that do not have a harmonized version, as follows:

Thanks for the response. I had seen these variables in the dataset and struggled to come up with desired outcome which i why i asked if the "school" variables assumes respondents who were not currently attending but used to attend are drop outs. I am asking because it could also be that they have finishd current level.


Thanks again!
