Abstract: One of the distinguishing features of science is its relentless effort to become more objective. In the social sciences agreement among coders on the classification of data has been a primary method used in assuring objectivity. Studies of coder agreement have customarily been with small samples or groups. Investigators have studied training, preparation of instructions to be used by the coders, construction of the categories to be used by the coder, and the characteristics of the coder himself. Very little research has been done with large groups of coders as subjects.
