The Trend and Comparative edit programs use an “Allowable Difference” percentage instead of an ETL to determine if your data passes or fails the program.

In the sample report, we can see that the first Critical Trend flag has been generated because:

A 74% of the records submitted in the current report period contain...
B “Male” as the...
C Sex.
D In the previous report periods, 27% of the records submitted contained “Male” as the Sex.

The 25% difference between the historical report periods and the current report period is above the...

E Allowable Difference of 20%.

The Critical Trend flags indicate potential errors in the reporting of Sex. Jane's current report period data may not be incorrect—maybe 74% of their discharges were Male.

Now she'll look at the DDR.
