House Number Definition

[ Edited ]

When defining the 'House Number', 'Stairway' and 'Door' in the Match Codes node, which definition has to be selected? Is that 'Address'?

Which precision is set by the rule of thumb (before using SAS Studio the match between adressess was between 60 and 70%)

See the attachment. I am using SAS Data Mgmt Studio 2.7

Re: House Number Definition

Take a look at the Match Codes (Parsed) node. It lets you map already parsed values by token into an Address match definition. Don't think you have to use every last bit of the address in your match rules. Maybe you have to if the address is the only aspect of the data that can differentiate duplicates but it's not uncommon to use names, phone numbers, gender codes, etc. with partial name and address data to identify matching records.
