CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata
Posted: June 23, 2005

Spain (1996 and 2000) - Macro Report: A5051

In the Spain (1996) and Spain (2000) election studies, variable A5051 (HEAD OF STATE - COMMANDER OF FORCES) is currently coded as "5. NO" but should instead be coded as "1. YES". According to the Spanish Constitution, the King is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

The error can be corrected by applying code similar to the following:

If A1004="ESP_1996" or A1004="ESP_2000" then A5051=1.
