2017-11-6WEIGHT - Denmark: Weighting factor providedDenmark now provided a weighting factor. By applying the weighting factor the Danish sample still better meets the national statistical distribution. Please contact isspservice@gesis.org to receive the amended WEIGHT variable.
2017-12-20LT_INC - Lithuania: Error in question documentationThe principal investigator for Lithuania revised the documentation of Lithuania´s question on household income ´After taxes and other deductions, what on average is the total monthly income of your household? Please sum up salaries, pensions, scholarships and other income of all the members of your family and AND DIVIDE IT BY THE NUMBER OF THE MEMBERS OF YOUR FAMILY´ in the BV document (ZA6770_backgroundvar_lt.pdf). In fact, this kind of income should not be divided by the number of family members. The correct translation for the original question therefore is: ´After taxes and other deductions, what on average is the total monthly income of your household? Please sum up salaries, pensions, scholarships and other income of all the members of your family.´

2017-8-8SR_DEGR: Wrong value labelsIn case of Suriname, the country specific variable on education has been revised from the first (ZA6770_v1-0-0) to the second dataset version (ZA6770_v2-0-0). The aim of this change was to provide R´s highest completed degree of education in order to better meet the ISSP standard, whereas in the first verion various incomplete education statuses were included (that are difficult to handle in regard to the harmonised DEGREE variable serving for international comparison). Unfortunately, the value labels have also been changed but provided are the value labels of the first release.2017-8-30Fixed.
2017-8-8TYPORG2 (Type of organization, public/ private) - Suriname: TYPORG2 identically equal to TYPORG1Accidentally, TYPORG2 is identically equal to TYPORG1 for Suriname in the second dataset version. A correct version of TYPORG2 can be provided on request: isspservice@gesis.org2017-8-30Fixed.
2017-8-8EE_DEGR: Wrong valuesThe national variable for Estonia on R´s highest completed degree of education, EE_DEGR, is erroneous and needs to be revised: Recode EE_DEGR (0=0) (1=2) (2=3) (3=4) (4=5) (5=6) (6=7) (7=8) (8=9) (9=10) (10=11) (11=12) (12=13) (13=14) (14=15) (99=99). And since there are no cases for code 4, the original cases for code 5 need to be re-established in a second step. A correct version of EE_DEGR can be provided on request: isspservice@gesis.org2017-8-30Fixed.
