Now going to school or on vacation from school

Codes and Frequencies


GOSCHOOL identifies persons age 12 to 21 who were currently going to school or on vacation from school.

With the exception of HEADSTARNOW, which identifies low-income children age 6 and under currently attending the federally-funded preschool program Head Start, GOSCHOOL is the only IHIS variable relating to current school enrollment. For the years in which GOSCHOOL is available, cumulative educational attainment is recorded in HIGRADE1, which reports the respondent's highest grade of school or year of college completed.
