What is the best way to determine if a person in the US had died?
Have you used both the National Death Index (for a fee) and the free Social
Security Index?  I'm trying to compare these indexes for completeness, lag
time, and quality.  If you have experience with these, or other resources
for determining death status for patients who have been lost to follow-up,
please contact me at [log in to unmask]
Thanks in advance,
