Controlled Vocabularies

Controlled Vocabularies

A number of EIDR data points rely on controlled vocabularies (also known as enumeration types). Take care to select values from the correct controlled vocabulary list and to maintain proper capitalization.[1] The vocabulary lists can be extracted from the EIDR schemas but are more conveniently available in Data Fields References available in the Member portal, in the various EIDR Excel templates, or via the drop-down lists in the EIDR Web UI.


[1] EIDR uses an XML-based schema, so these values are case-sensitive.
