INTRODUCTION
The following manual provides guidelines for coding as it pertains to each of the 1st Round open-ended questions (Questions 1, 11, 12, 38, 39, 40, 41, & 42) and to two rating sections (Optimism vs. Pessimism and Personal Impact).
Coding will be entered onto a Microsoft Excel grid spreadsheet. Seven rows will help delineate information for each of the columns, as follows:

Row 1: column #s as they appear in the comprehensive coding manual, inclusive

of all questions in the survey (not necessary to follow).

Row 2: column #s as they appear only in the open-ended coding manual.

Row 3: # of each question, as shown in the survey.

Row 4: abbreviated wording of each question (e.g. “Did you suffer any personal

losses in the attack?” becomes “Personal Loss”).

Row 5: sub-categories of each question that comprise groupings of responses

(e.g. under Question 11 (Personal Loss), sub-categories contain headings

such as “Financial Issues” and “Physical Property”).

Row 6: individual selections within each sub-category (e.g. “Financial Issues”

contains the selection “Job/Income” and “Business/Company".

Row 7: coding scheme that applies to each selection.
Be sure to place a coding entry in EVERY “cell” of the spreadsheet.

Be sure to stay alert to entering data into correct columns & rows.

Be sure to continually SAVE your work.

Because of the extensive amount of columns that comprise the open-ended coding, the spreadsheet will be partitioned into eight worksheets:


Worksheet #1: Identification, Question 1, Question 11, Question 12

Worksheet #2: Identification, Optimism vs. Pessimism (for Q38/39/40). Question 38 (1)

Worksheet #3: Identification, Question 38 (2)

Worksheet #4: Identification, Question 39 (1)

Worksheet #5: Identification, Question 40 (1)

Worksheet #6: Identification, Question 40 (2)

Worksheet #7: Identification, Question 41, Question 42, Personal Impact

Worksheet #8: Identification, Addendum


Identification information must be entered on all worksheets.
Because different coding schemes will be used not only for different questions, but also for different sections within the same question, it is important that you review each of the questions and coding sections as you arrive at them.

NOTES ON ADDENDUM:

Responses that do not correspond to the coding selections provided will be recorded on an addendum worksheet corresponding to the respective questions. Particular responses within an addendum column that showed enough entries (50 or more respondents) have either been transferred/added to the list of initial selections, if applicable, or have been given a new separate listing in the coding. These new listings are noted.


Entering the # of addendum listings:

TABLE 1

Enter alongside addendum entries the # of total entries for that particular selection. For example, in “Question 1 – Emotional Response (Additional)” the participant included 3 additional emotions that pertained to “Other”. In that case, next to each entry you would enter the number “3” to signify that a total of 3 entries were added to the addendum for that selection:

For addendum entries that comprise two columns, one for the entry itself and one for a numerical coding, make sure to include both the # of entries for that selection and, in the other column, the # for coding:

In the first of the two columns, “(2)” signifies the total # of entries pertaining to this addendum listing, NOT the # of cousins or step-aunts.


The second column reflects the numerical coding. For example, the participant stated that the cousin was there (subsequently), but the Step-aunt was the one who informed the participant initially of the events (this coding is explained on pages 12 & 14).

IDENTIFICATION

NOTE: IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE ID CODINGS ARE ACCURATE.

If ID codes are illegible or atypical, please inquire, or highlight and move on.
Overview:

The first four columns help to identify each survey and participant:


A) The first column ("oe1") identifies the university from where the survey originated combined with an assigned 3-digit number, starting with 001, 002, etc. (e.g. NSU001, NSU002, and so on). These are located at the top right corner of each survey. Do not hyphenate between the school & the number (e.g. NSU-001 is incorrect; NSU001 is correct). Suffix letter “A” is NOT attached to the S1 surveys. However, in survey rounds S2 and S3, the respective suffix letters “B” and “C” are used (i.e. NSU001B).
NOTE: Because the combined S1/S2 SPSS matrix requires matching ID codes from all rounds, columns will be added, for post-coding, to the S2 & S3 Excel matrix. These will help identify: a) the 1st Round (S1) Survey ID ("oe1-1st Round") and b) the SPSS 1st Round Subject ID ("oe2-SPSS"). THESE COLUMNS DO NOT APPLY TO THE S1 SURVEYS.
B) The second column ("oe2") identifies the participant by using the 7-digit coding entered by the participant, at the beginning of the survey. AGAIN, PLEASE MAKE SURE THIS IS ACCURATE.
C) The third column ("oe3") identifies the survey type (Hand-Printed or Web-Site, or Phone Version). In S1, the phone version is applicable only to the Harvard surveys. Website versions will apply only to rounds S2 and S3.
D) The fourth column ("oe4") identifies the survey version. In S1, these versions are based on varying sequences of the selections in Question 29, which asks the participant to recall the order of particular events of the attack. In S2 and S3, survey versions will also denote surveys asking for either Confidence ratings or Forecasting ratings.
NOTE: At the time of coding the short-answer data for S1, the column heading designating the survey version was labeled “Survey Type”. However, in the S1 open-ended matrix, the corresponding heading was changed to its more accurate label, “Survey Version”. This was done so that this ID column heading would be consistent in all open-ended matrices, for all survey rounds (S1, S2, & S3), as well as in the short-answer matrices for rounds S2 & S3.
