Code keys for variables
Please notice that SIMPLER has a new and updated variable list. The tab Categories and Content gives you an overview of how the information is structured, it is recommended that you go through that tab before starting to choose variables.
SIMPLER variable list SMC and COSM 1987-2019 (excel document). When applying for data, delete unwanted variables and keep requested variables in the variable list you upload in iLab. Use this swedish version of the variable list when needed, for example for ethical applications (excel file). DO NOT use the swedish version when applying for data.
If you want to convert to the former variable names use this conversion file (excel document).
