Data File.

The data file from study has been placed in a non-public, inactive status by the DataBank, as has the 1982 study data file.

The available data set for 1988 shows N=450. It is not clear in the report why this discrepancy occurs. It is possible that these interviews are the List interviews only, but not a certainty.

Moreover, the 1982 and the 1988 study data files have identical file structures and names - and both include a variable at the end that has categories of 1982, 1988.  

Researchers who want the data file should request it at info@jewishdatabank.org.

The DataBank recommends using the 2001 Tidewater data file instead.
