Data Element Dictionary (DED)
Like a regular dictionary, the Data Element Dictionary (DED) can be used to find the meaning and uses of terms that are unfamiliar. The DED provides definitions and descriptions of elements, tables and codes from the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Information System (CERCLIS) database used by the Superfund program. It also provides additional technical information for each entry, such as data type, field length and primary table. Using the DED, you can look up terms by table name or element name, or search the entire dictionary by keyword. Disclaimer
