To follow are some codebook and code label corrections for the ANES 2002 Pre and Post study. These corrections affect variables from the ANES 2000, which are included in the enhanced data file for the 2002 Pre and Post ANES.

[1] For V001000, the code labels in the codebook documentation should read as follows (file: nes02var.txt):

VAR 001000    Y29b. If had to choose class
       
      1. MIDDLE CLASS         --> SKIP TO Y29c
      3. LOWER CLASS (VOL)    --> SKIP TO Y30
      5. WORKING CLASS        --> SKIP TO Y29e
      6. UPPER CLASS (VOL)    --> SKIP TO Y30
      7. OTHER (SPECIFY)      --> SKIP TO Y30
       
      8. DK                   --> SKIP TO Y30
      9. RF 
      0. NA; INAP, 0 in Y29; 1,5 or NA in Y29a

Corrections should also be made to the 'formats' files. The formats should be as follows (files: nes02_fmt.sas and nes02_cod.sps):

       VALUE V001000f
       1 ="1. MIDDLE CLASS"
       3 ="3. LOWER CLASS (VOL)"
       5 ="5. WORKING CLASS "
       6 ="6. UPPER CLASS (VOL)"
       7 ="7. OTHER (SPECIFY)"
       8 ="8. DK"
       9 ="9. RF"
       0 ="0. NA. INAP, 0 in Y29. 1,5 or NA in Y29a"

[2] For V001636 and V001636a, In the codebook (file: nes02var.txt), the word "afraid" appears where it should read "proud". The corrected documentation for each is:

==============================
VAR 001636    S14d1. How often Clinton makes R proud

   IF R SAYS CLINTON HAS MADE R PROUD:

       How often would you say you've felt proud -- very
       often, fairly often, occasionally, or rarely?


==============================
VAR 001636a   S14d1x. Summ pre & post - how often proud

       How often would you say you've felt proud -- very
       often, fairly often, occasionally, or rarely?
