    Additional information

    Ethnicity coding is required for all UK domicile students. For analysis purposes this includes Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. This field derives the Student record field Student.ETHNIC or AP student record field StudentEquality.ETHNIC into common analysis groupings, and derives non-UK domicile students as NA 'Non-UK domicile'. In cases where domicile cannot be determined, such students are derived to UN 'Domicile not known'.

    99 'Not known' includes those UK domiciled students for whom either ethnicity was not known or those who refused to give information.

    For the purpose of this field White includes the codes for White - Scottish, Irish Traveller, Gypsy or Traveller and Other White background.

    Other (including mixed) includes Mixed - White and Black Caribbean, Mixed - White and Black African, Mixed - White and Asian, Other Mixed background, Arab and Other Ethnic background. The grouping of Arab with Other Ethnic background is consistent with the approach used by the Office for National Statistics for the presentation of ethnic group data.

    Definitions:

    XHOOS01 = 1 UK domiciled student
    XHOOS01 = 2 Non-UK domiciled student
    XHOOS01 = 3 Domicile not known

    Technical Specification

    As the Student record contains more valid entries in ETHNIC than the AP student record, more XETHNIC01 valid entries can thus be derived. Consequently, the technical specifications across the two collections deal with different cohorts of possible entries.

    Revision history

    Date Version Notes
    2017-10-31 1.6.1 The Technical specification section for the AP student record has been updated to add new ETHNIC valid entries 13 and 19, deriving to XETHNIC01 valid entry 10.
    2017-02-10 1.5.1 The Technical specification section for the Student record has been updated to add new ETHNIC valid entries 11 and 12, deriving to XETHNIC01 valid entry 10.
    2016-01-12 1.4.1 The Technical specification section has been updated to separate out the Student and AP student derivations, which have different cohorts of potential ETHNIC valid entries. No change to function.
    2015-09-29 1.3.1 Technical specification amended to derive those for whom a domicile cannot be established to a new valid entry, 'UN'. Previously an assumption was made within derived field XHOOS01 which is no longer the case, and the resulting amendment to that field needs to be dealt with in XETHNIC01.
    2014-10-16 1.2.2 Technical specification amended to allow for the use of this field in the Cyy054 AP student record.
    2013-01-09 1.2.1 New valid entries in Student.ETHNIC added to Technical specification, as a result of the implementation of Census 2011 codes. Text added to Additional information describing the grouping categories with these new entries.
    2009-07-16 1.1.2 Additional information text for White clarified
    2009-03-18 1.1.1 Created
