A complex type with complex content (CCC) is a structure that represents an object and may contain elements and attributes.
A CCC type represents an object with properties, rather than a simple value.
Examples of CCC types in NIEM include the following:
nc:PersonType, which includes properties like name, birthday, and height.
nc:LocationType, which includes properties like an address and lat-long coordinates.
nc:ContactInformationType, which includes properties like a telephone number and an email address.
