List of Claims

(Use for Coding CLAIMS, Question # 18)
For each Claim, there are two variables:
(1) A four digit code indicating the CLAIM, and

(2) A two digit code indicating the VALENCE or "pro" or "con" indication (VAL).


Note that items in the list below with an asterisk (*) are Claims that should be coded with a Detailed code (see next page for Detailed Codes).
Code up to four (4) CLAIMS.
Remember to list the main or primary claim of the event first on the codesheet (CLAIM1&VAL1).
I. General Claims Codes
0200 Anti Nuclear (Power) Movement

0300 Anti-Immigrant/Anti-Foreigner/Anti-Asylum Movement

0400 Small or Family Farmers or Organic Movement (Not Farm-workers)

*0500 Anti-“Transnational Union” Movements

*0600 Feminist or Women’s Movement

*0700 Peace Movement

*1000 International Human and Civil Rights/Democratization

*1100 Environmental or Green Movement

*1300 Social

*1500 Civil Rights--African Americans

*1600 Civil Rights--Gay and Lesbian (Including AIDS/HIV)

*1700 Civil Rights--Native Americans

*1800 Civil Rights--Mexican Americans

*1900 Civil Rights--Asian Americans

*2000 Civil Rights–Pan Latino (detailed codes below include non-Mexican Latino Issues)

*2100 Civil Rights--Disabled

2200 Civil Rights--Farm Workers/Migrant Farmers

2300 Civil Rights -- Undifferentiated Minority Groups

2400 Abortion

*2500 Anti-Ethnic Attacks/Hate or Bias Crimes

2600 Animal Rights

2900 Civil Rights - Seniors

1400 Other

For each, claim, there is a second variable, which is a two-digit qualifier for the valence of the event: Pro (01), Anti (02), Cannot be determined (03).


Valence (VAL) of the event: Pro or Anti the goals of the social movement/CLAIM?

01 Pro 02 Anti 03 Cannot be determined.


Note: This should be applied to the general category which represents the Social Movement. Examples: A pro-Native American protest would be: 1700-01. A pro-disarmament protest would be: 0702-01. A rally about the detrimental effects of pesticides on farmworkers would be coded pro-farmworkers: 2200-01. The valence code of “03" will primarily be used for codes under “Social 1300", “Anti-Ethnic Attacks 2500", and “Other 1400" since the valence of these issues is difficult to determine. If you are inclined to use “03" for any other Claim, please bring it to the coder meeting for discussion and approval.
