  1. “Completed education” refers to the number of years of education successfully attained from the beginning of secondary education, i.e. since age 12. The low educated attained at most secondary education, which consists in 7 years of education in case of vocational track and 6 years for all other educational programmes. The high educated attained a higher education than secondary education, since they successfully passed strictly more than 7 years of education in case of vocational track and strictly more than 6 years of education if enrolled in all other educational programs
