Derivation of data:
The surveys in 2000 and 2010 used a more differentiated answer scale than the original 1980 survey. To make the data comparable over time, the categories "between 200 and 500km" and "more than 500km" used in the later surveys were recoded into the original category "more than 200km" for this cumulative data set. Please refer to ALLBUS 2000 (ZA3450) and ALLBUS 2010 (ZA4610) for the more detailed data.
