Dear support team,
I am wondering if there is an ISCED variable available for UKHLS? I saw that this exists for BHPS, but could not find it for UKHLS. I saw that this question was posed in the support forum three years ago with the information that ISCED will be available with wave 9. Is that so and could you help me out with that? Do you perhaps have a code that converts UKHLS values into the ISCED scale?
Many thanks and all the best,

The Wave 9 data does contain the information needed to calculate the ISCED value, but it has not yet been calculated. We are looking into this further and will update you again.
Thank you very much,
looking forward to your update!

We plan to create the derived variable for ISCED to be released with Wave 10 data next year, but if you would like to calculate it yourself in the meantime then the information is in the Wave 9 datasets.
