The latest common basic data set (CBDS) and version control log, for use by software suppliers developing management information systems.
The CBDS defines common data items used in software systems across government, local authorities and schools. The database is managed on this spreadsheet which contains specifications for all:
- data items
- code sets
All specifications for data collections should be read in conjunction with the CBDS.
The CBDS makes use of filters and hyperlinks to enable navigation. The filters also make it possible to view extracts of the CBDS for use in specific collections and transfer files.
