Comparing reports from DEX to reports from CDS

The various Statistics reports in your CDS system (Emergency Relief Statistics, Financial Counselling Statistics etc.) have been in our system for some time and were built prior to the DSS DEX.

The logic in the report is very different to that which would be used in any report generated from DEX (we are not privy to their reports either as a user or as a developer). 

And, each report draws from a different data source. So it is unlikely that the figures will correlate exactly. The items that should match (or get very close) are session count in period and attendance count in period.

The items that will not necessarily match are ‘who is a new client’ – to use this is someone with no activities in the prior period but for DEX have a different definition (which we are not privy to)
