I have been asked to reconfigure several existing aggregate datasets - splitting one dataset into two datasets, reassigning certain data elements to a different dataset, changing the reporting period (from monthly to quarterly etc).
I realize that this will affect comparability over time and reporting rates going back vs forward. Is there anything I should think about, besides documenting the transition so anyone looking at the data and reporting rates over time is aware of the changes? Any other warnings/lessons learned? Thank you!
