Choosing the Data to Search

Choosing the Data to Search

SSA-NAME3 can be used to search on the following types of names:
  • Person names
  • Company/Business names
  • Mixed Person/Company/Business names
  • Addresses
  • Other short descriptive text (e.g. product/component/medical names, song titles / book titles)
It is important to choose data that is available in both reasonable quality and quantity. It is not a good idea to build the prototype to search on the made-up names in the development database. It is a much better idea to use an extract or copy of some real data.
