Abstract It is often desirable to convert verbal responses to multidigit codes. This conversion is generally accomplished by clerk-coders. A study was conducted to test the feasibility of translating verbal descriptions to numerical codes in a computer program. Primary emphasis was placed on computerized construction of a reference file of verbal descriptions for use by the program. The results of the study clearly show that such procedures are feasible.
