<notes> Notes and comments


For clarifying information/annotation regarding the parent element.

The attributes for notes permit a controlled vocabulary to be developed ("type" and "subject"), indicate the "level" of the DDI to which the note applies (study, file, variable, etc.), and identify the author of the note ("resp").

<valrng><notes subject="political party">Starting with Euro-Barometer 2 the coding of 
this variable has been standardized following an approximate ordering of each country's 
political parties along a "left" to "right" continuum in the first digit of the codes. 
Parties coded 01-39 are generally considered on the "left", those coded 40-49 in the 
"center", and those coded 60-89 on the "right" of the political spectrum. Parties coded 
50-59 cannot be readily located in the traditional meaning of "left" and "right". The 
second digit of the codes is not significant to the "left-right" ordering. Codes 90-99 
contain the response "other party" and various missing data responses. Users may modify 
these codings or part of these codings in order to suit their specific needs. </notes>
