get_icd9cm2014_leaf: ICD-9-CM, just billable/leaf codes

Description Format Details Source


ICD-9-CM, just billable/leaf codes


data frames with columns code, short_desc, and long_desc.


These are derived from the final CMS published version 32 for 2014, which was unchanged since 2011. The short descriptions are in ASCII with no special characters, whereas the long descriptions contain accented characters which are stored as Unicode, latin-1 or cp1252.

This all done during package creation, but can be repeated by package users, including pulling the data from the web pages directly. Despite my best efforts, current locale can give different results, but this packaged data is correct, with some UTF-8 encoded strings. icd9cm_billable has been removed, and is replaced by icd9cm2014_leaf now includes only the latest version (32).
