Code sets


There are three types of code sets:

  • User: A code set created and managed by a user. Other users, except for Administrators, cannot access this type.
  • Enterprise: A code set created and managed by an enterprise account user. Other users in the same enterprise account can access this type.
  • Global: A code set created and managed by a DiscoverText Administrator. Any user can access this type.

Hierarchical code sets

When you create a dataset, you can create a hierarchical code set, which is a multi-keystroke coding option. This is a useful way to code a complex dataset.

For example, in a code set about American political issues, the top level code indicates the geographical region, such as the Pacific Northwest. The next level indicates the type of issue, such as education.
