CSES Module 1 Data Set Errata

New Zealand (1996) – Replacement for Variable A2018
Parts of variable A2018, “Language Usually Spoken At Home” are incorrect in Module 1 for New Zealand only.
Below we provide, for download, a raw data file that can be used to replace A2018 for all New Zealand (1996) records. Using this data file to replace A2018 for New Zealand will make the necessary corrections.
Three variables are present in the tab-delimited file below. Please note that the first record is a header with the variable names. This file contains only the 4,080 records from the New Zealand (1996) election study data. The variables included are:
- A1003 >>> ID VARIABLE – ELECTION STUDY (NUMERIC POLITY)
- A1009 >>> ID COMPONENT – RESPONDENT WITHIN THE ELECTION STUDY
- A2018 >>> LANGUAGE USUALLY SPOKEN AT HOME
Variables A1003 and A1009 are for the purposes of merging the file. You should overwrite the existing New Zealand (1996) data for variable A2018 with the new data we provide below.
The datafile containing the A2018 data can be downloaded here: NZL_A2018.txt.
