Call for Data 2019 GenEDITS Plus 5

The 2019 GenEDITS Plus 5 Installation and Edits v16 and v18 guide is now available. GenEdits Plus is a tool developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) used for defining standards for data quality and for checking data quality during the collection process. Programs submitting data for the 2019 Call for Data should use GenEDITS Plus as a final check of edits before submitting to NCDB. Once the files are clean of edit errors, rename and submit to NCDB through the CoC Datalinks submission portal.

Download and install GenEDITS Plus 5 from the CDC website. Assistance from the program’s IT department may be needed. Additional information is posted in the 2019 GenEDITS Plus 5 Editing Software page.
