Detailed structure and explanatory notes

ISIC Rev.3 code 80


  • Tabulation Category: M - Education
  • Division: 80 - Education


This Division is divided into the following Groups:

  • 801 - Primary education
  • 802 - Secondary education
  • 803 - Higher education
  • 809 - Adult and other education

Explanatory note

This division includes public as well as private education of all types, provided by institutions as well as by private teachers, as a full time education or on a part-time or intensive basis, at day time or in the evening and at any level or for any profession.
The first three groups cover education which may be included under "the regular school system", i.e. a system of progressive school education for children and young people from the pre-primary school level through the university level. The breakdown of the categories is primarily based on the level of education offered.

Exclusion: Education primarily concerned with recreation such as bridge or golf education is classified in the appropriate class of group 924 (Sporting and other recreational activities).
