Completeness Rules

 

The Validate Data Completeness rules enable you to analyze the quality of your exposure data by flagging locations with empty, unknown, or user-specified values for geographic fields, values and terms fields, and primary or secondary risk characteristics. Click a rule category below for detailed information.

Geographic Rules

Geographic rules help you identify locations with empty or missing location information. Without accurate location information, you run the risk of analyzing locations whose attributes may include an incorrect soil type or an incorrect distance to a coastline, which can significantly affect modeled losses. The following table describes the settings in the available rules, including the settings in AIR's default rule set.

Attribute

Flags

AIR Default

Street Address Is Empty or X

Locations with an empty, unknown, or default (X) street address

Enabled

Street Number Is Missing

Locations with a valid street name but no street number

Enabled

City Is Empty or X

Not applicable

Match Level Includes

Locations that meet user-specified geocode levels

Flags locations geocoded as:

       City Centroid (6)

       Postal Code Centroid (4)

       County Centroid (7)

Values and Terms Rules

Values and Terms rules help you identify locations with specific or no replacement values, with specific limits, and/or with specific deductible information. You can also configure the rules to flag locations with values above or below a specific range, such as locations with a building replacement value less than or equal to $50,000. The following table describes the settings in the available rules, including the settings in AIR's default rule set.

Attribute

Flags

AIR Default

Total Replacement Value

Locations with a user-specified total replacement value

0

Replacement Value A and B

Locations with a user-specified combined building and other structures replacement value

Not applicable

Not applicable

Replacement Value C

Locations with a user-specified contents replacement value

Not applicable

Per Diem Replacement Value D

Locations with a user-specified per diem time element replacement value

Not applicable

Annual Replacement Value D

Locations with a user-specified annual time element replacement value

Primary Risk Characteristics Rules

Primary Risk Characteristics rules help you identify locations with unknown values for key building attributes. You can also configure the rules to flag locations that match specific AIR codes or that have placeholder values. Since these values make up part of the damage function that AIR uses to calculate modeled losses for a location, it is important that they are accurate and complete. The following table describes the settings in the available rules, including the settings in AIR's default rule set.

Attribute

Flags

AIR Default

Building Construction Is Empty or 100 (unknown)

Locations with an empty or Unknown (100) building construction class

Enabled

Building Occupancy Is Empty or 300 (unknown)

Locations with an empty or Unknown (300) building occupancy class

Enabled

Building Construction Code Includes

Locations with user-specified building construction codes

Not available

Occupancy Code Includes

Locations with user-specified building occupancy codes

Flags locations geocoded as:

       General commercial (311)

       General industrial (321)

Year Built

Locations built in a user-specified year

0

Height

Locations with a user-specified number of stories

0

Gross Area

Locations with a user-specified gross area

Not available

Secondary Risk Characteristics Rules

Secondary Risk Characteristic rules help you identify locations with unknown values for secondary building attributes. You can also configure the rules to flag locations that match specific AIR codes.

  Many of these rules are peril-specific; they will flag locations with unknown values only if the locations are also covered for the affected peril. For example, the analysis will flag a location with an unknown Torsion value if the location is covered for Earthquake Shake, but not if it is only covered for Tropical Cyclone Wind.

By default, this rule set is not enabled in the AIR (Default) Completeness rule set. Select the check box if you want to enable it. The following table describes the settings in the available rules, including the settings in AIR's default rule set. The descriptive information notes the peril-specific rules that apply to the attribute.
