Concerning the data:

In many cases "-", "k.A." or similar expressions indicate missing information, in consequence some numeric fields are defined as string values. Most numeric fields show "0" instead of missing value by field definition. Likewise this is a artefact of the original dataset and may be edited by the user.
Concerning the field labels:
The field names in dbf are restricted to 8 digits. The following list shows the assumed meaning of each original abreviation.
