I downloaded the data months ago but I am now finally finding time to look at this. I have a few questions about the data. Sorry if they have already been answered somewhere else.
1. The second column in the target file is ClaimsTruncated. The exact same numbers are in the sample entry. What is this? Are we supposed to estimate it or just copy it?
2. There is a field called DSFS (days since first service) in three different files - Claims, DrugCount, LabCount. Are these different days since first service?
3. DaysInHospital_Y2 is the outcome for members with claims in Year 1. Is this the length of time for the claim in Year 1? Something else? The naming is a little confusing. Same question for DaysInHospital_Y3.
