The operationalization of the ISCED scale has been done for the Microcensuses 1976-2006, the Census 1970, as well as for the Microcensus additional survey 1971. Therefore, educational information is comparable for a time span of more than 30 years.

* As the German Microdata Lab (GML) application of the ISCED classification of education differs slightly from that of the Federal Statistical Office, we make its specification available for one point in time (2003 Microcensus), thereby enabling users to make a direct comparison. For details of the differences between the classifications, see the ZUMA-Methodenbericht (ZUMA Methodological Report) 2006/08.
