ESS5 Error in Estonian country-specific education variables
Codes 313, 321 and 323 in Estonian country-specific education variables for respondent, partner, father and mother have been mixed up and need recoding in order to properly reflect distribution of education in Estonia. Recoded versions of EDLVDEE/EDLVPDEE/EDLVFDEE/EDLVMDEE will be available in future releases of the ESS5 data.
See below for suggested temporary solution to the problem, based on a recoding of the most recent version (as of 14th of June 2013) of the integrated file in SPSS (in this example, stored locally in folder "ESS" on the C: drive):
GET file 'C:\ESS\ESS5e03.sav'.
DO IF (cntry="EE").
RECODE EDLVDEE EDLVPDEE EDLVFDEE EDLVMDEE (313=321) (321=323) (323=313).
