A new version of the SPADE.RIVM package is released (version 3.1), together with a new version of the SPADE manual (version 2.1). Compared to SPADE version 3.0, there is one large change in the SPADE.RIVM package, i.e. a bug in SPADE for the never-consumers-model was fixed. Except SPADE for never-consumers, for all models the procedures are exactly the same for SPADE version 3.0 and 3.1. Due to some very small differences in rounding the data, there are minor changes in the model output and the output tables. All changes are described in Appendix E of the manual.
