Data Completeness Methodology Papers

Prior to April 2011 a data completeness score for each organisation was calculated and published alongside the Consultant-led RTT data. The data completeness measure was very important in the infancy of the RTT collection as it provided an estimate of data coverage for each organisation and was used to highlight organisations submitting unusual numbers of RTT periods. The calculation of a central data completeness measure was removed in April 2011. The methodology papers can be found below for reference.
