Variable REMUSSIZ reports the relative size of remittances that the household receives from the United States. The correct value labels for both variables are: 1. Small, 2. Intermediate, 3. Substantial. In the HOUSE codebook for Costa Rica the codes fore REMUSSIZ were accidentally inverted, with 1 assigned to "substantial." The problem has been corrected and the correct codebooks are available for download.
