This field contains the subset of codes applicable to England from the Student.ETHNIC field in the Student record.

It is HESA's intention to adopt national classifications where they exist and are appropriate. The use of Census 2001 ethnicity coding in this Record is an example of this practice.

The coding frame is that recommended by ONS for UK-wide data collection.

This information is available from UCAS and GTTR.

Code 98 'Information refused' includes all cases where the information has been actively sought but is still missing.
