ESS6 Incorrect DWEIGHT for Slovenia

The variable DWEIGHT for Slovenia in edition 1.2 (and previous editions) of the ESS6 integrated file is incorrect. As sample units are selected with equal probability, DWEIGHT should equal 1 for all Slovenian respondents in the data set. This mistake will be corrected in future releases of ESS6 data. In the meantime, we advise our users to recode this variable accordingly (for SPSS syntax example, see below. In this example, note that the integrated file is stored locally in folder "ESS" on the C: drive):

GET file 'C:\ESS\ESS6e01_2.sav'.
DO IF (cntry="SI").
RECODE dweight (Lowest thru Highest=1).
END IF.
EXECUTE.
