I am analysing PISA data and I get this error:
"One or more variables have a variance greater than the maximum allowed of 1000000."
Indeed, the student ID variables has a great variance as it has values like 30002554. However, I could leave with keeping only the last four digits for each value.
Is this a common issue when analyzing PISA data?
What can I do?

Don't include the ID variable in your USEV list. You are not interested in its sample statistics.
