Abstract : A procedure is described for automatically encoding text by the various labels indicating actions and characteristics of national actors, as used in the Stanford version of the General Inquirer. This procedure effects an automatic approximation to the man-executed operation of affixing these labels to appropriate words of the text. The procedure is carried out in two steps: the first step affixes sequential codes to appropriate words of the text; the second step converts each sequential code to a simgle code, thereby converting the output into the standard form used by the human coder operating with the Stanford version of the General Inquirer.
