From: Use of attribute association error probability estimates to evaluate quality of medical record geocodes

Attribute association description Core attributes from chronic disease record Questions relevant to probability of error in attribute association Association
Patient: geocode Patient identifying fields, date of diagnosis, address, postal code, postal locality and geocode What is the probability that the wrong set of coordinates (and by extension, residence) was chosen during geocoding for the patient? 4
