Definition: Automated data adjustments
UN - Data editing terminology
Automated Data Adjustments occur as a result of computer actions. A desirable option in any system allowing computer actions is to allow for the overriding of those actions at some level. Batch data adjustment results in a file of corrected (edited/imputed) records with accompanying messages to report on the computer actions taken to make the adjustments.
