Identifies whether a duplicates occurs in the same dataset or in a separate dataset.


For records identified as potential duplicates, this field records whether the duplicate occurs in the same dataset or if occurs in a separate dataset.

Where a duplicate record is identified in another dataset, it is more likely this is a shared sample or specimen.
