XML Element Output Value Mapping File (map)

The XML Element Output Value Mapping file is one of the back-end files. Each line has a number and a variable name. The variable name matches the variable names used in the measure tag found in the configuration tag of the module file (see the query module example file lines 45-64 or excerpt below). The order of the variables must match the order that the function file gives (excerpt below).

Syntax

File name: XMLVariableVariable.map
1 Variable name
2 Variable name_measure tag name
...

Note: The Variable name and measure tag name above come from the <CONFIGURATION> <MEASURE> tag in the Module file as follows:

File name: Module.xml
Variable name = Value
Measure tag name = DENOMINATOR, NUMERATOR, etc.
<MEASURE>
  <NAME>Value</NAME>
  <DENOMINATOR>...</DENOMINATOR>
  <NUMERATOR>...</NUMERATOR>
  <LOWER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT>...<LOWER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT>
  ...
</MEASURE>

Example

File name: XMLRateNumerDenomLCLUCL.map
1	1 RATE
2	2 RATE_NUMERATOR
3	3 RATE_DENOMINATOR
4	4 RATE_LOWER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT
5 	5 RATE_UPPER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT

Text comes from module XML file <MEASURE> tag. Order comes from last section of corresponding function file.

File name: CrudeRate.def (function file last part)
--------BoNdArY--------
1 out_detail out_2
rate 15.2
n 15.0
popnum 15.0
r1 15.2
r2 15.2
--------BoNdArY--------

Order of function file matches order of variables in XML Element Output Value Mapping file.

File name: Mort.xml (excerpt from <CONFIGURATION> tag)
1	<MEASURE>
2	  <NAME>RATE</NAME><!--variable name, first word on all lines  
  of XML Element Output Value Mapping file-->
3	  <TITLE>Crude Rates, Deaths Per 100,000 Population</TITLE>
4	  <DESCRIPTION>Mortality Crude Rates </DESCRIPTION>
5	  <NUMERATOR><!--measure tag name, used in XML Element Output  
  Value Mapping file-->
6	    <TITLE>Number of Deaths</TITLE>
7	  </NUMERATOR>
8	  <DENOMINATOR><!--measure tag name, used in XML Element Output  
  Value Mapping file -->
9	    <TITLE>Number in the Population</TITLE>
10	   <DESCRIPTION>Number of Persons in the Population</DESCRIPTION>
11	  </DENOMINATOR>
12	  <LOWER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT><!--measure tag name, used in XML  
  Element Output Value Mapping file -->
13	    <TITLE>95% CI LL</TITLE>
14	    <DESCRIPTION>95% Confidence Interval Lower Limit</DESCRIPTION>
15	  </LOWER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT>
16	  <UPPER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT><!--measure tag name, used in XML  
  Element Output Value Mapping file -->
17	    <TITLE>95%CI UL</TITLE>
18	    <DESCRIPTION>95% Confidence Interval Upper Limit</DESCRIPTION>
19	  </UPPER_CONFIDENCE_LIMIT>
20	</MEASURE>
