Subjective Coding Nurturing and Growing Customer Relationships <ul><li>For subjective data that involves decision making and interpreting information (for example recognizing documents types from hundreds of possibilities, or reading and identifying the parties to a title transfer as the grantor or grantee) we create unique coding manuals and training programs for each project. </li></ul><ul><li>Subjective Coding– Coding documents based on subjective interpretation, rather than the verbatim capture of words or terms. The subjects may be represented in shorthand “code” form to facilitate searching, sorting and reporting. </li></ul><ul><li>Is a more comprehensive service that provides a database with bibliographic information and relevant data extrapolated from searching line-by-line review of each page of each document coding with the requested words or names into a database record that is associated with the document that the word or name was found in. </li></ul>
