CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: May 1, 2003

Israel (1996) - Parties for Whom Respondents Voted

With new information provided by the Israeli collaborator, we can better identify the parties for whom respondents voted.

A2030, therefore, should be revised using the datafile that can be downloaded here: "ISR_1996.txt". (This data file contains the revised values for A2030 for 307 cases, in addition to country and respondent identification codes).

The current distribution is (with all prior errata incorporated):

                                              Frequency

01. LIKUD                                           236
02. AVODA                                           260
04. SHAS                                             71
06. GESHER                                           61
07. TZOMET                                           37
08. MOLEDET                                          13
09. YAHADUT HATORA                                  200
10. HADERECH HASHLISHIT                              45
98. RESPONDENT CAST INVALID BALLOT/ DID NOT VOTE     62
99. APPLICABLE BUT NOT ASCERTAINED- DK, REFUSED     106

Total                                              1091

When this correction has been correctly applied, the distribution for Israeli respondents should be:

Frequency
01. LIKUD                                           236
02. AVODA                                           260
