This presentation explores the current set of classes for describing qualitative data in the developing DDI4 model. The qualitative model is built on the work of DDI Moving Forward sprints, the DDI Qualitative Data Model Working Group, an NSF grant on enhanced citation, and an earlier metadata standard (Qudex). The current model includes the ability to describe the location of segments within objects; relationships between objects; relationships between segments within objects; and the attachment of memos, codes, and categories to segments. Discussion can include suggestions for further directions of the model.
