Posted: August 2, 2002

Mexico (1997) Vote Choice in Wrong Variable: Datafile: A2030-A2031

Vote choice data for the Mexico (1997) election study appear in the wrong variable. The data currently appear in variable A2030 (party list), but should instead appear in variable A2031 (party of candidate).

Analysts can correct the error using the following pseudo-code, adjusted for their particular statistical software. The two lines of code should be executed in the order shown.

if a1003 eq 48401997 then a2031 eq a2030.
if a1003 eq 48401997 then a2030 eq     0.
