Temporary tables

We will need to extract the following information from the digital questionnaire.

Please find the explanation for Archivist Elements

  1. Sequence
  2. Statement
  3. Question item
  4. Question grid
  5. Code list
  6. Response
  7. Condition
  8. Loop


Naming

LabelStarts WithExampleLabel Note
Statements_qs_qQual
Question item qi_qi_Smoker

Question grid 

qg_qg_Qual
Code list cs_cs_Yes_No
Conditionc_qc_qSmoker

Labelled after the question in the condition logic.

If there isn't logic then it should be labelled after the first question inside the condition.

In case of duplicated labels: c_qSmoker_i, c_qSmoker_ii etc.

Loopl_ql_qSmokerLabelled after the first question inside the loop.


  • Branch in conditions 0 is true 1 is else.  i.e. if the parent_type is condition, and it if a true branch, then branch = 0 for that question/statement ..
