<embargo> Embargo


Provides information on variables/nCubes which are not currently available because of policies established by the principal investigators and/or data producers. The ISO standard for dates (YYYY-MM-DD) is recommended for use with the "date" attribute. An "event" attribute is provided to specify "notBefore" or "notAfter" ("notBefore" is the default). A "format" attribute is provided to ensure that this information will be machine-processable, and specifies a format for the embargo element.

The "format" attribute could be used to specify other conventions for the way that information within the embargo element is set out, if conventions for encoding embargo information were established in the future.

will not become available until September 30, 2001, because of embargo provisions established by the 
data producers.</embargo></var>
