What the heck is a Sequence Number? What’s the difference between that and the Question Number?

The Sequence Number is used when you have multiple related Questions, to tell HIFIS what order to display the Questions in.

  • The Question Number groups related Questions together. All related Questions should have the same Question Number.
  • The Sequence Number indicates, of the related questions, what order they should display in.  All related Questions should have different Sequence Numbers.
  • The Sequence Label is optional, and can be used to describe the order to users

For example:

  • Question Number 1; Sequence Number 1 – Have you ever called 911?
  • Question Number 1; Sequence Number 2 – If so, what for?
