This field is used to record the measure that the data value represents. The default option is 'Unspecified'. The options that follow this are in decreasing order of preference (i.e. most preferred is first. 'Unspecified' is set as the default, not because it is the most prefered, but rather because it occurs most frequently).
Only one measure should be recorded for a data type from a given data set.

• Unspecified — this should be recorded when there is no qualification of the measure used. For example, ‘mountain lion neonates are typically 155g’.
