Collection Mode
  • Variables in this subsample differ somewhat from those in the original dataset: variable 274 has been excluded and variables 240, 241, 254, 255, 260, 261 have been recoded to fewer categories than in the original version of the survey data. Though a machine-readable codebook for the original complete dataset is available from ICPSR, access to the original dataset is possible only through the Swedish Social Science Data Service, Goeteborg University, Box 5048, S-402 21 Goeteborg, Sweden. Machine-readable documentation is in Swedish.
