ESS6 Error in Region variable for Russian Federation

The variable labels for the Russian regions in the REGION variable are partly erroneous in edition 1.1 of the ESS6-2012 data file.

Correct variable labels should be:

RU11 - Central FO
RU12 - North-Western FO
RU13 - Volga FO
RU14 - South FO
RU15 - Ural FO
RU16 - Siberian FO
RU17 - Far East FO
RU18 - North Caucasian FO

The error will be corrected in future editions of the ESS data.
