To follow are some codebook and code label corrections for the 2000-2004 Merged File. These corrections affect variables from the ANES 2000 Time Series Study.

[1] For P001000, the code labels in the codebook documentation should read as follows (file: nes2004fullpanel_var.txt):

VAR P001000    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: nes2004fullpanel_fmt.sas, nes2004fullpanel_fmt.do, and nes2004fullpanel_cod.sps):

       VALUE P001000f
       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 P001636 and P001636a, In the codebook (file: nes2004fullpanel_var.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?
