The library access variable is a weighted sum of the responses that chose from `QB1 How many times in the last twelve months have you visited a public libarary?` any answer apart from "not in the last 12 months.

The limited library access is a weighted sum of the responses that chose from the question block
`QB2 And for each of the following activities, please tell me why you haven’t done it or haven’t done it more often in the last 12 months? ... Visited a public library` the answer option `Limited or poor quality of this activity in the place where you live.` In this case, the number of respondents is rather low and this is not a very reliable statistic on regional level.
