Data Dictionary

Column Type Label Description
WeekEnding numeric Last day of the reference week.
Cases numeric Number of cases. A case is generated by a positive test however an individual can have multiple tests, and all positive results are reported to the contact tracing system so that each result can be assessed by the contact tracer and followed up as required. In many cases, there is no follow up for a repeat positive test (because the person was already contact traced when their first positive result was reported).
CompleteCases numeric Number of complete cases. Completed cases are cases which are marked as completed in the case management system, which means that all contacts have been followed up and completed. In the latest weeks there will cases which are still open either because contact tracing is still underway (particularly for the latest week) or the NHS Board is still managing the case as part of an open outbreak.
