AUTOMATED DATA ADJUSTMENTS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Automated data adjustments occur as a result of computer actions.

Context:
A desirable option in any system allowing computer actions is to allow for the overriding of those actions at some level. Batch data adjustment results in a file of corrected (edited/imputed) records with accompanying messages to report on the computer actions taken to make the adjustments.
