HESA Student Record 2007/08 - National identity
HESA Student Record 2007/08
return to field list
This field records the national identity of the student. National identity is different from both ethnicity and nationality and could be based on many things including, for example, culture, language or ancestry/family history. National identity reflects how an individual chooses to classify himself or herself.
|Base data type
To monitor the impact of policies and practices on students of Welsh or other UK background.
To compare sector data with that from other areas of the economy.
The coding structure reflects that used in other national surveys and so allows comparative statistics to be derived both within and outside the sector.
A student can identify himself or herself as having up to two national identities.
Code 'U' Unknown should be used where a student has either not been asked or has failed to respond to a request for information about his or her national identity.
Code 'R' Information refused should be used when the student has explicitly refused to provide the information.
