Record-level result indicators provide data about the results of ValidateMailingAddressUSCAN processing for each record, such as the success or failure of the match attempt, which coder processed the address, and other details. The following table lists the record-level result indicators returned by ValidateMailingAddressUSCAN.

Table 1. Record Level Indicators

Response Element

Description

AddressFormat

The type of address data being matched to the address format:

F
French format (for example: 123 Rue Main)
E
English format (for example: 123 Main St)

Confidence

The level of confidence assigned to the address being returned. Range is from zero (0) to 100; zero indicates failure, 100 indicates a very high level of confidence that the match results are correct. For multiple matches, the confidence level is 0. For details about how this number is calculated, see Introduction to the Validate Address Confidence Algorithm.

CouldNotValidate

If no match was found, which address component could not be validated:

  • ApartmentNumber
  • HouseNumber
  • StreetName
  • PostalCode
  • City
  • Directional
  • StreetSuffix
  • Firm
  • POBoxNumber
  • RuralRoute
Note: More than one component may be returned, in a comma-separated list.

CountryLevel

The category of address matching available. This is always "A" for U.S. and Canadian addresses. One of the following:

A
The address is in a country for which there is highly detailed postal data available. Addresses in this match level can have the following address elements validated and corrected, and added if missing from the input:
  • Postal code
  • City name
  • State/county name
  • Street address elements
  • Country name
B
The address is in a country for which there is a medium level of postal data available. Addresses in this match level can have the following address elements validated and corrected, and added if missing from the input:
  • Postal code
  • City name
  • State/county name
  • Country name
C
The address is in a country for which the postal data is least detailed. Addresses in this match level can have the following actions performed on them:
  • Validate and correct country name (cannot supply missing country name)
  • Validate the format of the postal code (cannot supply missing postal code or validate the code)

MatchScore

MatchScore provides an indication of the degree to which the output address is correct. It is significantly different from Confidence in that Confidence is indicates how much the input address changed to obtain a match, whereas the meaning of Match Score varies between U.S. and non-U.S. addresses.

For U.S. addresses, MatchScore is a one-digit score on a scale of 0 to 9 that reflects the closeness of the street-name match (after transformations by ValidateMailingAddressUSCAN, if any). Zero indicates an exact match and 9 indicates the least likely match. If no match was found, this field is blank.

For non-U.S. and non-Canadian addresses, MatchScore is a five-digit score, with a maximum value of 00999. Higher numbers indicates a closer match.

This field does not apply to Canadian addresses.

Note that you cannot equate match scores from U.S. addresses with those of non-U.S. addresses. For example, a match score of 4 for a U.S address does not indicate the same level of match as a 00004 for a non-U.S. address.

Note: The Validate Address and Advanced Matching Module components both use the MatchScore field. The MatchScore field value in the output of a dataflow is determined by the last stage to modify the value before it is sent to an output stage. If you have a dataflow that contains Validate Address and Advanced Matching Module components and you want to see the MatchScore field output for each stage, use a Transformer stage to copy the MatchScore value to another field. For example, Validate Address produces an output field called MatchScore and then a Transformer stage copies the MatchScore field from Validate Address to a field called AddressMatchScore. When the matcher stage runs it populates the MatchScore field with the value from the matcher and passes through the AddressMatchScore value from Validate Address.

MultimatchCount

If multiple matches were found, indicates the number of records that are possible matches.

MultipleMatches

Indicates which address component had multiple matches, if multiple matches were found:

  • Firm
  • LeadingDirectional
  • PostalCode
  • StreetName
  • StreetSuffix
  • TrailingDirectional
  • Urbanization
Note: More than one component may be returned, in a comma-separated list.

ProbableCorrectness

Indicates the accuracy of a match on the scale of 0 to 9. This field applies for USA addresses only.

The result for USA addresses can be:
  • Blank - No Match Found
  • 0 - Most likely to be correct (Exact Match)
  • 1- 8 - Intermediate probability of being correct
  • 9 - Match least likely to be correct

ProcessedBy

Which address coder processed the address:

USA
U.S. address coder
CAN
Canadian address coder
INT
International address coder

RecordType

Type of address record, as defined by U.S. and Canadian postal authorities (supported for U.S. and Canadian addresses only):

  • FirmRecord
  • GeneralDelivery
  • HighRise
  • PostOfficeBox
  • RRHighwayContract
  • Normal

RecordType.Default

Code indicating the "default" match:

Y
The address matches a default record.
null
The address does not match a default record.

Status

Reports the success or failure of the match attempt. For multiple matches, this field is "F" for all the possible matches.

null
Success
F
Failure

Status.Code

Reason for failure, if there is one. For multiple matches, all possible matches is "MultipleMatchesFound."

  • DisabledCoder
  • InsufficientInputData
  • MultipleMatchesFound
  • UnableToValidate

This value will appear if Status.Code=MultipleMatchesFound.
Address Not Found
This value will appear if Status.Code=UnableToValidate.
PerformUSProcessing disabled
This value will appear if Status.Code=DisabledCoder.
PerformCanadianProcessing disabled
This value will appear if Status.Code=DisabledCoder.
PerformInternationalProcessing disabled
This value will appear if Status.Code=DisabledCoder.
