[Gretl-users] Minore mistake in the user's guide

In Example 13.1 of the guide, KIDS is coded as:

series KIDS = (KL6 > 0) + ((KL6 > 0) || (K618 > 0))

and therefore it takes values:

KIDS = 0 -> no kids
KIDS = 1 -> older kids only
KIDS = 2 -> young or older kids

and not:

KIDS = 0 -> no kids
KIDS = 1 -> young kids only
KIDS = 2 -> young or older kids

as incorrectly stated.
In order to have the latter, KIDS should be coded as:

series KIDS = (K618 > 0) + ((KL6 > 0) || (K618 > 0))

i.e.

KIDS = 0 -> no kids
KIDS = 1 -> young kids only
KIDS = 2 -> (young and older kids) or (older kids only)

Just a minor mistake...

Bye
Giuseppe
