Information indicating that the individual has either graduated from high school or has obtained a high school equivalency certificate.
Refers to the possession of a secondary (high) school graduation certificate or its equivalent, regardless of whether other educational qualifications are held or not. It is a summary variable that separates the population into those with and those without a secondary (high) school graduation certificate or its equivalent. It also provides information on any additional education that has been undertaken by these two populations.
Examples of high school equivalency certificates are General Educational Development (GED) and Adult Basic Education (ABE).
