Sex Code Validation Utility

A software utility developed in MS Access to identify miscoded sex codes based on first name. Taking as input a data file in NAACCR v12 or v13 format, a query runs against a list of known sex/name pairs, and it produces a list of cases for manual review that have potential errors in sex. The utility is based on an algorithm provided received from Laura Soloway of the New York Cancer Registry in August 2011. David O'Brien from the Alaska Cancer Registry.
