CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: August 2, 2002
Israel (1996) Vote Choice: Datafile: A2028
There are 79 cases which are mistakenly coded in variable A2028 under category '7. Inconsistent response: Did not vote; Vote choice indicated'. In fact, these 79 cases are non-voters, and should be reported in category '5. Did not cast a ballot'.
Analysts can correct these errors with syntax similar to the following, adjusted as appropriate for their statistical packages:
if (a1003 eq 37601996 and a2029 eq 98 and (a2030 eq 98 or a2030 eq 99)) then a2028 eq 5.
