CS Defaults version 02.05.50 Dated 2013-10-14
An Excel spreadsheet which provides the default values for the CSv0205 data fields for Death Certificate Only (DCO) cases originally coded under CS v02.05.50. The spreadsheet is organized by schema and is for cases which have a behavior code of 3. Instructions are included.

CSv2 Valid Invalid & Obsolete Code Tables v.02.05.50
Valid, Invalid, and Obsolete Codes Tables: Excel Spreadsheets are provided which show schema-specific valid and invalid values for each field for CS version 02.05.50. An Excel spreadsheet is also included which contains the obsolete codes for version 02.05.50. Please note that the obsolete spreadsheet has a table for each obsolete code type and one of all obsolete codes combined. These three spreadsheets are not mutually exclusive since the obsolete codes are also contained in the valid code list.

Test Cases for the Algorithm: Vendors have expressed an interest in obtaining test records which have a known behavior when the CS algorithm is run on them. Two sets of random test cases, one for valid CS codes (valid.NAACCRv14.in.v020550.txt) and one set with one and only one CS invalid code (invalid.NAACCRv14.in.v020550.txt) in each record were generated from the XML files. These input files (.in.) are in NAACCR v14 format (LRECL = 3339) and only contain the CS input fields and other fields necessary for the DLL to successfully run. On the input file, the record is un-staged, i.e., all derived CS fields are blank. These files can be used as input to the corresponding version of the CS algorithm (v020550). The output files (.out.) contain the staging results generated by the CSv2 algorithm. When staging the Valid “in” file, no errors should be generated by the algorithm. When staging the Invalid “in” file, one specific error message should be generated per data record. Please note that each record of the invalid “out” file contains the first 200 characters of the error message generated by the CSv2 algorithm. The error message has been written to column 1236 (Reserved 05).
