Field name Code Derived from
HOMEEUOS 1 (Home) XDOMHM01 = 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5
2 (EU) XDOMHM01 = 6
3 (Overseas) XDOMHM01 = 7
4 (Not known) XDOMHM01 = 8
DORMANT 1 (Dormant) Instance.MODE = 63 or 64
0 (Not Dormant) Instance.MODE not in (63 or 64)
CENSUS Dec (December Census) Instance.ENDDATE >= 01-AUG-Y1 and Instance.ENDDATE <= 31-OCT-Y1
Mar (March Census) Instance.ENDDATE >= 01-NOV-Y1 and Instance.ENDDATE <= 31-JAN-Y2
Jun (June Census) Instance.ENDDATE >= 01-FEB-Y2 and Instance.ENDDATE <= 30-APR-Y2
Sep (September Census) Instance.ENDDATE >= 01-MAY-Y2 and Instance.ENDDATE <= 31-JUL-Y2

2 If only one qualification exists the second qualification field will be blank.

3 The XJACSLEV101, XJACSLEV201 and XJACSLEV301 fields are derived from the CourseSubject entity which, for Graduate Outcomes, will always have at least one occurrence and may have up to 3 (this is enforced in the business rule QR.Cyy051.Course.CourseSubject.2 as the level is HE). The derived fields are held in the Cyy051_SJ table and each Instance.INSTANCEKEY will link to the table between 1 and 3 times. Consequently, XJACSLEV101_1, XJACSLEV201_1 and XJACSLEV301_1 will always be populated but XJACSLEV101_2, XJACSLEV201_2, XJACSLEV301_2, XJACSLEV101_3, XJACSLEV201_3 and XJACSLEV301_3 may not be.

4 The domicile field is taken from the latest Entry Profile data received. This is recorded in the EP_USE table in the XDOM field which has been updated with the current submission. The table is linked to the Instance via UKPRN+HUSID+NUMHUS.
