Common Deceased Data Cases

We've compiled a list of some of the most common deceased data cases for your reference

 

TrueDeceased is designed so you can upload and process your file, and then export and download your deceased data in just a few clicks. Instead of returning your whole file, we return just the records that matched to our deceased data source. This means that you could only have 4 records of export data instead of the 10,000 you processed.

While your individual use cases may vary depending on your suppression project, we have listed some of the most common deceased data cases in the chart below with examples and suggested actions.
