SRS States Table

(dwst.srs_states)

Explanation

Lookup table for US States and Canadian Provinces.

Common Uses

  • Displaying the actual name of a state or province instead of the code that appears in one of the Related Tables. ("Don't show the codes in the report. Show the English instead.")
Primary Key Indexed Data Elements Related Tables
STATE   PERSON_ALL_V, ADDRESS

Cautions

  • This table may differ from State lists maintained in other systems at Penn. In the Student Records System (SRS), the State field houses the 2-character US State code, and also all unincorporated territories associate with the United States, as well as military "state" designations. It also houses the 2-character code for Canadian Provinces.
  • The Country code in this table is a two-character code that can be decoded from the Country table used by SRS.
