Coded data and documentation for respondent (self-identification) ethnicity mentions from the Pre-election survey are now available for the following variables:

      V083252a  Y25a. Main ethnic or nationality group - Mention 1
      V083252b  Y25b. Main ethnic or nationality group - Mention 2
      V083252c  Y25c. Main ethnic or nationality group - Mention 3
      V083252d  Y25d. Main ethnic or nationality group - Mention 4
      V083252x  Y25x. SUMMARY COUNT for: Main ethnic or nationality group
      V083253   Y26. IWR CHECKPOINT: number of ethnic mentions
      V083254   Y26a. Ethnic group most close
      V083255   Y27. IWR CHECKPOINT: MENTION ETHNIC HISPANIC
      V083256   Y28a. No ethnic mention Hispanic: is R of Hispanic

As a result of the ethnicity coding and review, errors in interviewer checkpoints (Y26,Y27) have been identified, and the Post-election Hispanic status summary variable (V085027) has been updated. It should be noted that code labels for some values have been revised as indicated in the documentation file.
