SCHLCOLL_CPS8 reports whether the respondents was enrolled during the previous week in school, high school, or college/university, and, if so, whether they were enrolled full- or part-time. College or high school students who were currently on holiday or seasonal vacation were to answer yes, but those not taking classes during summer vacation were to answer no.

SCHLCOLL_CPS8 was drawn from the final CPS interview, conducted 2-5 months before the ATUS interview. Information on school enrollment was also collected at the time of the ATUS interview. See SCHLCOLL.
