DateSubjectDescription
1996-3-4V2 (Respondent ID Number) - New Zealand: Identical ID NumbersRespondents in New Zealand with identical ID Numbers: New Zealand: #1601312 (two cases, different responses). These cases have different responses and thus are probably really different respondents. We leave it to your decision whether these should be excluded from secondary analyses.
1998-1-5V108 (subjective social class) - Austria: Coding ErrorThere is an error in the Austrian variable V108 - subjective social class. The Austrian codes should be recoded: 1 --> 1, 2 --> 2, 5 --> 4, 6 --> 5, 0 --> 6, 7 --> 7
2009-12-11V131 (WEIGHT) - Australia: Coding ErrorThe weight variable V131 in Australia was coded by mistake to code 0, but should be recoded to code 1 ´No weighting´, as Australia has not provided a weighting factor.
2018-2-1Information on identified duplicated records in ISSP datasets:Please, check in document ‘ZA1490_All_Overview_Duplicated Records.xlsx’ in tab ‘Data & Documents’, subtab ’Other Documents’, whether the dataset at hand contains any identified duplicated records.
