What do the numbers and letters signify in the dupe groups listed in the Duplicate Record queries?

The number/letter combinations in the Duplicate Record queries make up specific dupe group categories that the system assigns to any potential duplicate households, people or organizations.

  • The leading numbers (01, 03, etc.) estimate the likelihood of two records being duplicates; the lower the number, the higher odds that they are duplicates to be merged in many cases.
  • The other characters (“EN,” “PA,” etc.) explain what data on the records was identified as a potential indicator of the records being actual duplicates.

You can find the entire list of dupe group categories in this documentation article.
