Canada (1997) One Inconsistent Vote Choice Response: Datafile: A2028

In the Canada (1997) election study, one record appears in which the respondent indicated they had voted (variable A2028), but no vote choice is indicated (variable A2031). Variable A2028 for this single case should be recoded to category '6. Inconsistent response: Voted; No vote choice". The following pseudo-code can be used to make the correction, after modification to fit the statistical software is use. Note that "eq" means "is equal to".

if a1003 eq 12401997 and a2028 eq 1 and a2031 eq 99 then a2028 eq 6.
