CONDITIONAL EDIT

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
A conditional edit is an edit where the value of one field determines the editing relationship between other fields and possibly itself. For example, suppose there are three fields A, B, and C. A conditional edit would exist if the relationship between fields B and C as expressed through the edits depended on the value in A.

Example:
1) If A>0 then B>C
2) If A>B then C>B.
