Errata:

  • Data for Q.3 (MINIMUM INCOME) are not available, except for Norway.
  • Q29M (WEEKLY WORKING HOURS) data for FINLAND are dubious. In addition to single wild codes for all countries, the Finnish cases coded 300 to 450 are clearly out of range (part of the cases to be coded 30 to 45 might have erroneously been coded using the first two of the three digits provided for data entry). Consequently also Q29R should only be used with caution for Finland. [26.04.05]
