Understanding Your Processed File

With each file, you will receive data about any deceased individuals on your file. Using Excel sorting and filtering techniques, you can find any matched records by using the Match Value. Additionally, TrueDeceased only returns the records which have matched to the TrueDeceased deceased data source. This allows you to quickly review your file and suppress any deceased records.

Household vs Individual Match

We match records on both Individuals and Household data. This means that you get back more data and are more aware of what is happening in your constituent's life. There's nothing more cringe-inducing than contacting someone and asking about their spouse
only to hear that the spouse passed away several years back.


Individual matches will indicate if the person in your input record was matched to the deceased record. This means that both their first name and last name plus address, phone, or email was a match.


Household matches will indicate if there was a match to a household member of a person in your input record. This means that the last name plus address of the input individual matched to the last name and address of the deceased individual.

purchased. To see all returned fields and review your definitions, check out our Data Dictionary located on our FAQ page.
