Report Options
Matching Options
Use these options to specify matching criteria for identifying duplicate subjects based on demographic information. By default, this report attempts to Match subjects based on: their date of birth. You can optionally match subjects by their initials instead. Increasing the Number of Days around Birthday that are included in the search can increase the chances of finding matches. Adding or subtracting Sex, Race, and/or Country to your search criteria increases or decreases, respectively, the specificity of your search.
Filtering the Data:
Filters enable you to restrict the analysis to a specific subset of subjects based on values within variables. You can also filter based on population flags (Safety is selected by default) within the study data.
See Select the analysis population, Select saved subject Filter1, Additional Filter to Include Subjects, and Subset of Visits to Analyze for Findings for more information.

Subject-specific filters must be created using the Create Subject Filter report prior to your analysis.
