Data items required for valid response and asked of third party
Version 1.0 Produced 2017-03-02
A 'valid response' is defined as the minimum number of answers required for the DLHE survey. These are indicated in the 'Required for valid response' column. Higher education providers are expected to submit these 'valid responses' to HESA.
In order for a submission to HESA to be considered valid, a number of data items are required. In some cases data items must be submitted regardless of whether or not a response is provided by the student, as indicated in the 'minimum occurrences' and 'maximum occurrences' within each data item. In such cases the HE provider is expected to code appropriately.
Within entities there are some cases where 'Required for valid response' is indicated against particular data items (i.e. Employment.EMPCOUNTRY or Employment.EMPPCODE or Employment.EMPPLACE and Study.COURSENAME or Study.SUBJECT), yet the submission of each data item is only necessary in conjunction with, or instead of, the other data item within the entity. For these data items, 'minimum occurrences' are therefore indicated as 0.
This table summarises the data items that are required for a valid response and the data items that are to be asked of third parties. Further details are in the individual data item pages.
