|Description:||VCF0703 registration-turnout summary data for 1972|
An incorrect representation of the 1972 cross-section is provided in CDF summary variable VCF0703 (voter registration and turnout). This is the result of standard processing in 1972 when question administration was not, however, standard.
For 1972, VCF0703 data represent all voters but exclude many nonvoters.
This is because the question on registration status in the 1972 Pre-election wave
systematically excluded approximately half the respondents, while the Post-election turnout question
was administered to all respondents.
if VCF0701 =0 then VCF0703 =0;
