educational attainment [EDUC] categories

I see that the questionnaire text was asked the way I’m interested in:

NURSERY OR PRESCHOOL THROUGH GRADE 12

Nursery school
Kindergarten
Grade 1 through 11 – Specify grade 1-11 -->
12th grade – NO DIPLOMA

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE

Regular high school diploma
GED or alternative credential COLLEGE OR SOME COLLEGE
Some college credit, but less than 1 year of college credit
1 or more years of college credit, no degree
Associate’s degree (for example: AA, AS)
Bachelor’s degree (for example: BA, BS)

AFTER BACHELOR’S DEGREE

Master’s degree (for example: MA, MS, MEng, MEd, MSW, MBA)
Professional degree beyond a bachelor’s degree (for example: MD, DDS, DVM, LLB, JD)
Doctorate degree (for example: PhD, EdD)

But the variable is then coded as follows:

|

N/A or no schooling

|
|

Nursery school to grade 4

|
|

Grade 5, 6, 7, or 8

|
|

Grade 9

|
|

Grade 10

|
|

Grade 11

|
|

Grade 12

|
|

1 year of college

|
|

2 years of college

|
|

4 years of college

|
|

5+ years of college

|

I’m guessing this was done for harmonization purposes. Is there a way to get the original, unharmonized EDUC variable, which contains the categories I’m interested in?

Thanks so much.

I hope this helps.
