Derivation of data:
The data in this variable was calculated from the data in dm05 RESP.: SINCE WHAT YEAR IN THE FRG? and the year of the survey (year).

dm05a = year – dm05

When there was no valid data in dm05, the number of years could not be calculated. These cases were coded as -32 ‘cannot be generated’.
The calculation of the data for ALLBUS 1990 additionally used information on the month of arrival in Germany (comp. V371 in ZA1800, this data is not included in the cumulative data set):
The number of years calculated on the basis of dm05 and year was reduced by 1 when the value for the month of arrival (V371 in ZA1800) was greater than the value for the month of the interview (V467 in ZA1800).
Data on the month of arrival was not surveyed in 1982.
