ESS5 Incorrect variable label for D14 (PLCARCR)

An inconsistency between question wording in the ESS5 questionnaire and variable label in the ESS5 data file (edition 3.2) has been detected for variable D14 (PLCARCR). In the current edition of the ESS5 data, variable label for D14 is: "How quickly would police arrive at a violent crime/burglary scene near to where you live.". According to the questionnaire, the variable label should include reference to violent crime only.

Correct variable label for D14 (PLCARCR) is thus: "How quickly would police arrive at a violent crime scene near to where you live".

This error will be corrected in future editions of the ESS5 data.
