    NotesSampling was carried out at the same time as PIAAC (ZA 5845). A supplementary sample was drawn for this project in addition to the PIAAC sample. Sample of persons: The sample for the PIAAC sample was drawn as a two-stage stratified and clumped random selection from all persons living in the Federal Republic of Germany (Germans and foreigners) who lived in private households at the time of the survey and were between 16 and 65 years old. The selection unit of the first drawing stage were municipalities that were selected according to regional characteristics and stratified according to size. At the second drawing stage, target persons of the population as a whole were systematically randomly selected from the respective population register in each municipality drawn. In the municipalities drawn from the eastern German Länder and in eastern Berlin, disproportionately more persons from the population registers were selected from the respective population registers, so that target persons aged between 26 and 55 could be randomly selected for the supplementary sample. In contrast to the scientific-use file of the PIAAC main sample (ZA 5845), the present data set contains a variable (Federal_state2) that differentiates between East and West Berlin respondents. Also included is the variable ´Federal_state´, which summarizes East and West Berlin respondents and is also available in the scientific use file of the main sample. The distinction between East and West Berlin in the variable ´Federal_state2´ was made on the basis of the district boundaries before the 2001 reform, which corresponds to the classification before reunification. Sampling and weighting were also carried out on this basis. The district classification before 2001 and its allocation to East and West Berlin are shown in the right-hand part (columns ´Old districts´ and ´East/West allocation´) of Table 1 in the appendix. The left part of the table (´New districts´) shows how the old districts are distributed among the districts existing since the 2001 reform.
