Many of the data-fields in the UK Biobank repository have interlinked dependencies, for instance
- Data-fields which determine if a particular question was asked, such as "do you have children" would determine whether the question "when did you have your first child" was asked;
- Data-fields which are closely tied together, such as the systolic and diastolic blood pressures taken at a single reading;
- Quality/auditing information generated by a device during operation;
- Data derived from other data, such as Body Mass Index constructed using weight and height.
