Issue found with the GES10 flat file were discovered and addressed.  Updated files for PERSON, PARKED, VEHICLE, and ACCIDENT were posted.  Issue regarded the stamping of descriptions for attributes instead of the actual code for most of the fields.  Descriptions were removed and codes added.


Due to an error detected in coding the data element “Vehicle Trailing”, we have temporarily deleted the data element from the 2010 NASS GES SAS file and flat file.  Once corrected, we will update the 2010 data file.
