You can upload a data dictionary in ODC format any time while you are working with your data. The steps are simple!

  3. In case the upload fails, please ensure that the dataset variable names exactly match (spelling, caps) the variable names in the data dictionary, see more common errors.

3. In the Data dictionary and methodology page you can follow the instructions and select the .csv file to upload your data dictionary

Done! You have associated a data dictionary or methodology file to a dataset
