Question metadata (sample)



A tibble with 30 rows, each row corresponding to a variable (column) in a particular CCES dataset. It contains metadata about the question in columns.


A unique identifier for the question. This is roughly a concatenation of cces_year and q_code, with some standardization.


A short descriptive label of the question, based on a reading of the actual question wording.


The dataset the variable column comes from. Because the CCES is fielded each year, this is often a year, with the exception of "cumulative"


A string of the variable as it appears in the dataset.


A classification of the response option. Currently it consists of "yesno", "categorical" (discrete but not ordered), "ordinal" (discrete and ordered). All of these presume a discrete response.
