Additional information

UK region unknown is determined in XDOMGR01 when a non-matched POSTCODE is supplied, but no DOMICILE is given.

Not known is determined in XDOMGR01 when neither POSTCODE nor DOMICILE is supplied, or POSTCODE is null and DOMICILE is ZZ 'Unknown'.

The Non-UK codes are taken from XDOMGR01 - these codes are derived from an overseas lookup table provided by Data Management, which includes all valid domicile codes except ZZ.

For the purpose of this field code XL includes Guernsey, Jersey and Channel Islands not otherwise specified. Officially, the Crown Dependencies of Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man are not part of the UK or the EU. In HESA analyses they are, however, often grouped as UK domicile.
