Definition: 

RelationStructure for use with any mixture of Variables in the Variable Cascade (Conceptual, Represented, Instance).

Explanatory Notes: 

A VariableCollection can be described as a simple list, or as having a more complex structure. All of the "administrative" variables for a study might be described as just a simple list without a VariableRelationStructure. If, however, the administrative variables needed to be described in subgroups, a VariableRelationStructure could be employed.
