Abstract

The purpose of this report was to describe the use of nine specific override flags on the data file submitted to NAACCR for 1995-1999. The feasibility for establishing guidelines for a reasonable use of override flags was evaluated. The report concluded that there was no reasonable standard that could be established for setting override flags based on the data set; however, the use of override flags should be continued to be monitored. Registries with outlier values for setting override flags should be contacted to clarify the methods used in reconciliation of edits errors.
