CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: October 1, 2002

Australia (1996) - District Level Returns Flipped: Datafile

The district level returns for Australian parties A and B are flipped. That is, the Liberal Party returns are reported in variable A4004_A, and the Australian Labour Party returns are reported in variable A4004_B.

The following pseudo-code can be used to correct the problem, after modification to fit the statistical software in use:

rename variable "A4004_A" to "temp".
rename variable "A4004_B" to "A4004_A".
rename variable "temp"    to "A4004_B".
