Inclusion patterns for MR-sets
Updated over a week ago

Longitudinal studies often involve making changes to questionnaires from wave to wave, which implies making changes to the codebook as well. DataTile offers a time-saving hack that will help you automatically include new options in MR-sets. It is based on using common inclusion patterns and requires some prior preparations with proper naming for options in a codebook.

Use any constant name pattern coding the answers to the multi-response question (e.g. 'UA_' for Unaided awareness). It is important to ensure that your variable names are consistent across all waves.

After the naming is done DataTile detects the pattern and suggests using it during the creation of MR-set in Meta-Editor. Tick the box to automatically include all future answers in the existing MR-set.
