Known Usage Locations
Used to describe the levels of the code scheme hierarchy. The level describes the nesting structure of a hierarchical coding structure. The use of Level relates back to the inclusion of descriptions for nested categories in version 2.1. Levels take the place of category groups as they were used in DDI versions through 2.1. Category groups in version 2.1 became upper category levels in hierarchical descriptions in version 3. A level could have data attached to it (summary of its children) or no data attached to it (the equivalent of creating a category group in 2.0 and earlier versions Note that the attribute levelNumber is used for referencing specific codes to their level identifier.
