ERHS Raw data files (1994-1995)

The raw data files are available as Zip archives:

95-raw.zip (kB)

The original data was put in per survey site. The raw data files are organised as such.

Note that you can also download a more user friendly reorganised version of the data. This reorganised data is available in the 1994 ERHS Base data files . If you don't have SPSS, we recommend you using the reorganised data, for which an extensive description is available in the data documentation. The exact phrasing of the questions can be found in the 1994-1995 Questionnaires.

The files are in SPSS/PC+ format (extension .sys) and contain a data dictionary. If you have SPSS, it is easy to know the content of the files. To find out which variables each file contains, 1) start SPSS, 2) choose 'file' from the main menu, 3) from the drop down menu, choose 'Display Data info', 4) in the interactive window choose the filename and file type, and choose 'Open'. A list of the variables and the questions they refer to appears in the output window.

More detailed information on the files and their content can be found in Data Documentation.
