ESS7 Missing data for SUPQDD for United Kingdom

The variable SUPQDD ("Day of month, supplementary questionnaire") has been erroneously coded to 99 "Not available" for all respondents for the United Kingdom in ESS7. A data file containing the corrected variable is available for download in the United Kingdom section of the ESS7 - 2014 Data Download page. The variable will be corrected in future updates of the integrated ESS7 data file.  In the meantime, we advise our users to update the data by replacing the variable using the following syntax (In this example, note that the data files are stored locally in folder "ESS" on the C: drive):

SPSS:
MATCH FILES
 /FILE=" C:\ESS\ESS7supqGB.sav"
 /FILE="C:\ESS\ESS7e02_1.sav"
 /BY cntry idno.
EXE.
SAVE OUT "C:\ESS\ESS7e02_1_Update.sav".

Stata:
use "C:\ESS\ESS7e02_1.dta"
merge 1:1 cntry idno using "C:\ESS\ESS7supqGB.dta",  replace update

SAS:
LIBNAME ESS "C:\ESS";
data ESS.ESS7e02_1_Update;
  merge ESS.ESS7e02_1 ESS.ESS7supqGB;
  by cntry idno;
run;
