During research, certain types of data may not be used in the analysis, depending on the type of study being performed. These data are called exclusions. Examples include: records falling outside the time frame of the study, non-residents of Manitoba based on postal codes or municipal codes, postal codes indicating an address at Public Trustee offices or at Child and Family Services offices, and records from out-of-province hospitals.
