Education in single years (HV108) is defined accordingly:

This variable is constructed from the educational level (HV106) and the grade at that level (HV107) as follows:

HV106 = > HV108
0 = > 20
1 = > HV107
2 = > HV107+x
3 = > HV107+y
9 = > 99

x = years to complete primary education y = years to complete primary and secondary education where both x and y are country-specific

My question is whether x and y are constant (according to structure of the education system at the time of the survey) or that they can vary (conditional on the age of the respondent and changes to the duration of education when they hypothetically would have completed a level of schooling). For example, if primary education was extended from 5 to 6 years in year z, respondents that completed primary to year z could have one fewer year of education than those that completed after the change.
