Aggregated levels for survey output

Categories may be combined for output when there is insufficient data to output all of the NZQF categories for highest qualification and post–school qualifications. This output will be compatible with ISCED requirements.

Level 4 Certificate
Level 5 & 6 Diploma
Level 7 Bachelor Degree
Level 8 & 9 Postgraduate Degree
Level 10 Doctorate Degree
Overseas Secondary School Qualification

For some sample surveys, output may need to be further aggregated for confidentiality and data quality reasons. Where possible the standard output should be used.

NZSCED

Standard output for post–school qualification subject

Natural and Physical Sciences
Information Technology
Engineering and Related Technologies
Architecture and Building
Agriculture, Environmental and Related Studies
Health
Education
Management and Commerce
Society and Culture
Creative Arts
Food, Hospitality and Personal Services
No Qualification
Not Elsewhere Included

Note: NZSCED Category 12 Mixed Field Programmes is not used to code qualifications and so is not standard output for qualifications. This category is used to describe courses for social and employment skills.

The residual categories may be output separately or combined. Where a combination item of residuals is to be used in output, this item should be labelled ‘not elsewhere included’ and should have a footnote indicating its composition.

The residual categories for both classifications are defined in Glossary and references.
