Screening Data Against Custom Values

With custom analysis, users may import external data into SADA to use for screening purposes. For example, a user may wish to screen data against state soil screening values. To change the screening statistical approach, see Set Statistics. The results may then be integrated into the other modules, such as decision maps, cost benefit analysis, or sampling schemes. First the external data must be imported into SADA through the Setup Custom Analysis process.

Once setup is complete, SADA will determine which data points in the current SADA file exceed the Custom Values. To view this information, select the data name (select Pooled Data to screen all) and data type of interest from the secondary toolbar. Then, from the Custom menu, select Custom Screen Table.

SADA will screen the data against these custom values. If data exceeds the custom value, the cell value is Yes. The cell is blank if the calculation was not available (due to lacking toxicological information) or was less than the custom value.
