comment “Dummy variable” versus “indicator variable” for nominal/categorical data
@NickCox: Would you also use "indicator variable" for the dummy variables in {-1,0,1} used for sum-to-zero coding?

comment “Dummy variable” versus “indicator variable” for nominal/categorical data
Indeed the very paper you cite says that, using effect coding, "the dummy variables take on the values 1, 0, and -1". (Of course I think they should have called "dummy coding" something else if they're going to say that.)

I didn't say "dummy variable" isn't used for 0/1 coding, just that it may be used in a more general sense.
