ESS2 - 2004 Deviations - Iceland


Inconsistency of respondent identification number (IDNO) across the Icelandic data files. All respondents are not present in all files, and only the main file has respondent number for all cases. Consequently, merging together variables from different files, for example interviewer and main file, could be problematic.


Question was asked with an additional non ESS code 3 indicating respondents that do not have a primary care doctor. This have been recoded into 9=No answer.

7 cases (idno=1, 22, 102, 146, 219, 516, 552) have more than 50% Refusal, Don't know or No answer in Main questionnaire.
