Definition: 

A combination of a characteristic of a population to be measured and how that measure will be represented.
(From GSIM 1.1).

Explanatory Notes: 

Describes a RepresentedVariable contained in the RepresentedVariableScheme. In addition to the standard name, label, and description a RepresentedVariable contains a reference to the Concept and Universe (or ConceptualVariable) as well as the representation of the RepresentedVariable. Representation may be provided in-line or by reference to a managed representation. RepresentedVariables are the core reusable parts of a Variable. RepresentedVariable maps to the GSIM Represented Variable.

NOTE: Moved from Conceptual To LogicalDataDescription for purposes of ContentReview, Dagstuhl sprint Oct 2014 - should be returned to Conceptual after this.

Example: 
The pair (Number of Employees, Integer), where "Number of Employees" is the characteristic of the population (Variable) and "Integer" is how that measure will be represented (Value Domain). (From GSIM 1.1)
