Definition: 

A Classification Index is an ordered list (alphabetical, in code order etc) of Classification Index Entries. A Classification Index can relate to one particular or to several Statistical Classifications. [GSIM Statistical Classification Model]

Explanatory Notes: 

A Classification Index shows the relationship between text found in statistical data sources (responses to survey questionnaires, administrative records) and one or more Statistical Classifications. A Classification Index may be used to assign the codes for Classification Items to observations in statistical collections.
A Statistical Classification is a subtype of a Structured Collection. [GSIM Statistical Classification Model] Note that a GSIM Node is the equivalent of a DDI Member and a GSIM Node Set is a DDI Collection.

Example: 
An alphabetical index of a topically ordered Statistical Classification

releaseDate

Date when the current version of the Classification Index was released.
availableLanguage
0..n
A Classification Index can exist in several languages. Indicates the languages available. If a Classification Index exists in several languages, the number of entries in each language may be different, as the number of terms describing the same phenomenon can change from one language to another. However, the same phenomena should be described in each language. Supports the indication of multiple languages within a single property. Supports use of codes defined by the RFC 1766.
corrections
0..n
Verbal summary description of corrections, which have occurred within the Classification Index. Corrections include changing the item code associated with an Classification Index Entry.
codingInstruction
0..n
Additional information which drives the coding process for all entries in a Classification Index.
type
