Coding scheme

-8Not coded (before 19950000)

Notes: This new field will be introduced from 1 April 1996 allowing OGSS files to be used to recode 1995 and subsequent year events, to new 1996 and subsequent year boundaries, (ie to allow events to be forward coded one year to areas in place at the time of the annual outputs eg 1996 data to 1997 areas). It is applicable to 1995+ data only. This code is derived from PCDR, the postcode of usual residence, using the appropriate parts of WARDX on the OGSS Postcode file PNAACMyy, (where yy = year of file), to find the correct value. Details of the code values, two character numeric, are as given in OGSS documentation.
