This question was already asked in the forum, but I could not find a clear answer.
It seems that definition of "ClaimsTruncated" changed every year. The "ClaimsTruncated=1" samples have different distribution of number of claims in each year. In the first year number of claims for such samples ranges from 3,5,6 etc. up to ...40,41,42,43. (Number of samples corresponding to last four values are: 237, 217, 116, 581.). In the second year all "ClaimsTruncated=1" samples have same number of claims: 43. And in the third year all "ClaimsTruncated=1" samples have number of claims = 44.
As I understand, the best explanation given or assumed so far in the forum is that the year 3 had cut-off =44; the year 2 had cut-off =43 (why different?), and the year 1 had of course completely different definition, and somehow the difference is related to "ProcedureGroup" data.
Is there any better info on this, any clarification, or definitions of "ClaimsTruncated" that would be easy to understand? Thanks
