DR7 - Caution! Changes in LAMP-DR7 data

June 5, 2003 - Duplicated and omitted households in HOUSE file, Dominican Republic (US sample only)

We detected an error that affected the US Samples, in HOUSE file only, for Dominican communities 6 and 7. If you are working with these data, or you expect to work with them in the future, it is essential that you download it again from this website.

The error was the result of a programming accident when we merged the US samples of the HOUSE file for all seven communities in LAMP-DR7. At that time, we erroneously retrieved the data from community 6 twice, omitting the data from community 7. As a results, the 15 househodls from community 7 were lost in the merged HOUSE file, while the 5 US households from community 6 were duplicated.

The problem has been corrected. We apologize for the inconvenience. Again, you only need to re-download the Dominincan HOUSE file.
