New Features

The following high level features have been added in this release:

  • New +Create tab in Manage codebooks page. – Allows the user to take a dataset (Stata or SPSS) and generate a basic DDI-C codebook. Finally, the new codebook is loaded into the CED2AR database. This is an experimental feature that works with file datasets. (The repository option has not been implemented.)

  • ced2ardata2ddi service added – A new SOA service has been added to support the conversion of datasets (Stata or SPSS) into DDI-C codebook format. (The SOA service is only used in the +Create tab. System administrators have the option of turning off this service. If the administrator unchecks the service, the +Create tab will not be displayed to the user.)
