ESS2 - 2004 Deviations - Finland


Question C9 (RLGBLG) was changed after two weeks of fieldwork. Respondents who answered "No" were followed up by the question "Do you belong to the church?". This is contrary to the guidelines given in the source questionnaire. This deviation influences the rest of the religious denomination section. The Finnish data have been omitted from the international file, but the deposited variables are available from a separate country specific file for Finland.


This question was only included in the Finnish questionnaire after three weeks of fieldwork and has therefore a very high proportion of the missing value 99 "No answer".
