Implications and caveats

Severity: Warning

It is reasonable for an occurrence to happen on the first year in the century. However, for some datasets the closest estimated date for an occurrence may be the century. Where a date has been entered as the first of January, or no day and month information is available, and the year ends with 00 (e.g. 1800 or 1900), the record is flagged.

Data custodian recommendations

Check dates and supply more granular information if possible.
