An efficient edit is good at identifying suspicious data. Edits that incorrectly flag large amounts of valid data are not very efficient. If such edits require an analyst to re-contact the respondent to verify the data, the analyst will have less time to perform other tasks, such as converting non-respondents. The hit rate may be used as an indicator of editing efficiency.
