CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: August 4, 2003
Updates made to the Full Release of August 4, 2003, since the Advance Release of July 26, 2002
The files released on August 04, 2003 are an update to the original release of July 26, 2002. The updated files are being provided as a convenience to users. No records were removed nor added, and so the record, country, and election study count remain the same.
Updates were as follows:
- Some minor codebook and label corrections (usually typographical errors or small improvements) were made.
- All errata posted on the website from July 26, 2002 through August 4, 2003 were applied to the files.
- Variable "A1007", previously containing "OLD POLITY CODE" data, was replaced with data concerning "SAMPLE COMPONENT". The new use of variable "A1007" for "SAMPLE COMPONENT" allows us to identify regions of countries or other sample components as units of analysis, rather than the elections themselves.
"OLD POLITY CODE" was a past CSES identification variable that is now outdated (having been replaced by variable "A1006", "ID COMPONENT - POLITY", which is based on United Nations Statistics Division coding schemes).
