|Applicable to||England Northern Ireland Scotland Wales|
Compulsory for all records.
|Valid entries and labels|
The coding frame for this field is consistent with the Aligned Data Definitions (ADD) coding frame based on the ISO-3166-1 Alpha-2 list of country codes and adapted by the Office for National Statistics.
This coding frame is determined by the National Statistics Country Classification 2006 (NSCC), which is based on ISO 3166-1 Codes for the Representation of Names of Countries and their Subdivisions, and the United Nations' Standard Country or Area Codes for Statistical Use. In a small number of cases, the NSCC usage differs from the usage in ISO 3166 on which the NSCC is based. Where that happens, the ISO 3166 usage is given in brackets after the preferred UK usage, to facilitate cross-reference to the international standard. For example, for code KR the description is Korea (South). The text in brackets [Korea, Republic of] is the ISO 3166 description.
Where HESA publishes domicile and nationality data it does so using the National Statistics Country Classification 2006 (NSCC) code labels. HESA includes the ISO 3166-1 description [text in brackets] within the valid entry labels to ensure that labelling standards, both UK and international, are available only for cross-referencing. HESA does not insist that HEPs display these additional descriptions in their own output.
Regional codes such as 'XQ Africa, not otherwise specified' have been excluded from use in populating this field.
