Italy 2014 Added to both LIS and LWS Databases

One new dataset from Italy, IT14 (Wave IX) has been added to both the LIS and LWS Databases.

The dataset is derived from the 2014 wave of the Survey of Household Income and Wealth (SHIW), carried out by the Bank of Italy.

Note that the SHIW data are used for the creation of the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS) data of the European Central Bank (ECB); however LIS has used the original SHIW data to create the LWS dataset.

In addition to those new datasets, three previous datasets based on the same survey (IT08 and IT10 for LIS and IT10 for LWS) have been revised both for consistency and to take into account a revised weight based on the latest population composition estimates form ISTAT.
