Errata:

  • SIZE OF COMMUNITY (P6) data for SWEDEN have been supplied with four categories, deviating from the Swedish field questionnaire (seven categories) and from Eurobarometer surveys 44 ff.

  • Starting with Eurobarometer 34 and up to survey 61, NUTS 1 level data (REGION II) for the NETHERLANDS are not (re-)coded
    in accordance with the official EUROSTAT nomenclature of territorial unit statistics. The NUTS 2 level province ZEELAND should be
    coded as belonging to NUTS 1 region (landsdel) WEST instead of SOUTH Netherlands. (ZA editions corrected from EB 53 onwards, November 11, 2005)     

  • Portuguese data for INCOME (D.29 / V149) have been shifted and documentation (including the variable reort) is not correct. The correct categories and corresponding frequencies are as follows. Users should recode the data (9=13, 10=14) and re-define the categories in accordance.
