full-date = date-fullyear date-month date-mday
date-fullyear = 4DIGIT
date-month = 2DIGIT ; 01-12
date-mday = 2DIGIT ; 01-28, 01-29, 01-30, 01-31 based on month/year


  • If a use case requires age related information but not the specific date of birth, the attribute swissEduPersonMinimumAgeCategory should be preferred over swissEduPersonDateOfBirth.
