Derivation of data:
The data in this variable was calculated from the data in dm02 IMMIGRANT: SINCE WHEN IN GERMANY, YEAR and the year of the survey (year).

dm03 = year – dm02

When there was no valid data in dm02, the number of years could not be calculated. These cases were coded as -32 ‘cannot be generated’.
The calculation of the data for ALLBUS 1991 additionally used information on the month of arrival in Germany (comp. V332 IMMIGRANT: SINCE WHEN IN GERMANY, MONTH in ZA1990, this data is not included in the cumulative data set):
The number of years calculated on the basis of dm02 and year was reduced by 1 when the month of arrival (V332 in ZA1990) was between July and December.
