ABS Certificate Edit

1. The ABS uses the following edit procedure when coding the response of 'certificate' from ASCED Level of Education code 500 to either 510 Certificate III & IV or 520 Certificate I & II based on the year of the award and the ABSCQ code assigned:

If ASCED level = 500 and ABSCQ Level code = 6 and Year non-school qualification completed <1998 then new ASCED code = 510
If ASCED level = 500 and ABSCQ Level code = 7 and Year non-school qualification completed <1998 then new ASCED code = 520

2. This edit is applied after dual coding to ASCED and ABSCQ.
