Socio-economic status (SES)

SES is estimated by combining the International Socio-Economic Index of Occupational Status (ISEI) with information on the highest level of education among a student’s parents, family assets, educational resources at home and family cultural assets. Within PISA, ISEI is calculated based on students’ answers to questions about their parents’occupations.
