D36 (IMDETBS) and D37 (IMDETMR):
Translation error in the Austrian questionnaire. The phrase "different race or ethnic group" was translated as "the same race or ethnic group", leading to the Austrian translation meaning exactly the opposite from the intention in the source text. The Austrian data for D36 and D37 have been omitted from the integrated data file.The original variables have been renamed into IMDETBAT and IMDETMAT and are available from a separate country specific file for Austria
