### Key to CODES for problems with initial proposals, drafts/papers

Bp=Beware picking topics because you have searched for correlations and significance
H=Hypothesis Hs=specify H2-too simple H3-check 3rd factor, such as the societal complexity variable
Hc-state as predicted correlation
P=Problem introduction, P+=expand Pv=vocab. use: e.g., test not prove
Fo=focus
I=Importance (i.e., Significance) Iv=include some variables related to your themes in this discusssion
I+=more attention to general significance
R=Readings R+=more needed Rx=cross-cultural
readings needed
Re, ReR=Resubmit / Redo Recode
U=Units Ui=discussion at individual level
Uc=units at country or civilizations level
Um=careful with variables about CHANGE or modernization (1806-1849) which is a process, and not equivalent to modern.
V=Variables Vs=specify V#=var numbers V+=more
variables Vc=watch out for variables 1806-1849 which code **changes** not attributes
V2=Variables too similar for two topics
W, Gr=Writing, grammar (study the type of
errors you tend to make) , Wrs=spellcheck, Wp=phrasing
No=No proposal, not attending
### Additional CODES for problems with drafts/papers

E=examples of ethnographic cases (will be)
needed
L=logic of argument
O=organization
S=statistics: problems interpreting
Sg=problem with significance
T=tables: additional tables needed (related
variables for tests)
-=no draft yet
### Additional CODES for problems with Cross Tabs

dic,D=use dichotomies, BECAUSE using the
comparison of percentages in each column there is reason to do do
J=include crosstabs or graph of relationship, not just statistics
K=use recode Km=recode missing data
M=Modify format to fit onto page (see
Advice for Contingency Tables and Textbook chapter 5)
N or NL=Relationship nonlinear (or
curvilinear) tables not dealt with
Sc=use tau-C
Sf=use Fisher's exact test of significance Sff=Fisher 3-way test
Sv=use Cramer's V coefficient
Svt=use Cramer's V and tau-b coefficient
Sz=too much missing data->small sample
size->wont pass signif test
X=cut "case processing summaries"
or program instructions (always!)
Xb=trim text in layer table under %s or elsewhere
Z=sample sizes too small
2=too many layered variables
3=3 way layers needed; 3+ new layer var needed (not v200)
99=recode 99 as missing data
%=use (e.g., row) percentages (never use
total %ages; don’t use both row and col %s)
%s=simplify %ages so that there is no text explaining them,
this makes the tables far too complicated and bulky.
