Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

One method of identifying the currency of an address is the use of specific start and end dates relating to an address. A currency flag or sequence number which identifies the addresses in active use can also be used. Some systems include both options to better support validation. The use of start and end dates are included as they are the clearest mechanism for supporting identification and communication.
