Population Configuration
This area will allow a user to configure several parameters to influence the generated data.

- Number of patients
Determines the base number of patients generated.

It is mentioned that there are several parameters that can be configured. Is there any other configuration for population other than the number of patients ? If so what are they ?

1. - End Date
Defaults to the current date. Used with the start date to determine patient age window.

'Start Date' is a date for data generation wherein records created earlier to it are not to be considered.So, basically it is a date of a record creation but not any birth date of the person in the record.Then, how can we say that a period window created using any such 'Start Date' and 'End Date' will also amount to the patient age window?

2. When a start date is populated on the basis of a selected war era, then which among the following is expected as a start date: Date when war era started or the date of the first record belonging to such war era?
If it is supposed to be the date of the first record belonging to a selected war era, then how would we know such date for all war eras?

3. Finally, Can you please provide any authentic source to understand different war eras.Can the link I am mentioning here be referred https://www.benefits.va.gov/pension/wartimeperiod.asp ?

Thanks!

Just the number of patients, start date, end date, and war era.

The start and end dates are driven by the war era selection, but could be
over-ridden

Answers below:


1. The start date will determine the War Eras that are included. When
the system generates data, it will look to a "war era config" file to
figure out how to profile the data. By default, that start date will be a
single selected war era and the end date will be "today". This will
determine how old the population is based on some data in the "war era
config" file.
2. The start date will be the first official date of the war:

3. Here is a document with official war eras:
