Additional Note on Continuous Items
Some continuous data items are allocated special codes for certain responses (e.g. 9999 = 'Not applicable'). When creating ranges for such continuous items for use in the TableBuilder, these special codes will NOT be included in these ranges. Therefore the total shown only represents 'valid responses' of that continuous data item rather than all responses (including special codes).
The following table shows the responses for 'Systolic Blood Pressure' by 'Sex of person'. The continuous values of the data item are contained in the 'A valid response was recorded' row. If the actual continuous values are to be displayed then it is necessary to create a range for them.
Here is the same table with a range applied for the continuous values of 'Systolic Blood Pressure' (SysExample). Note that the numbers of respondents for the other responses 'Not applicable', 'Valid reading not obtained' and 'Not measured' no longer contribute to the table.
Any special codes for continuous data items are listed in the Data Item List.
Please be aware that the effects of perturbing the data may result in components being larger than their totals. This includes determining proportions.
