Summary

Defining URL: http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/marital-status
Version: 4.0.0 4.1.0
Name: Marital Status Codes
Title: MaritalStatus
Definition:

This value set defines the set of codes that can be used to indicate the marital status of a person.

Committee: Patient Administration Work Group
OID: 2.16.840.1.113883.4.642.3.29 (for OID based terminology systems)

This value set is used in the following places:


This value set includes codes from the following code systems:

  • Include all codes defined in http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-MaritalStatus
  • Include these codes as defined in http://terminology.hl7.org/CodeSystem/v3-NullFlavor
    Code Display
    UNK unknown Description:A proper value is applicable, but not known.
    Usage Notes: This means the actual value is not known. If the only thing that is unknown is how to properly express the value in the necessary constraints (value set, datatype, etc.), then the OTH or UNC flavor should be used. No properties should be included for a datatype with this property unless:
    Those properties themselves directly translate to a semantic of "unknown". (E.g. a local code sent as a translation that conveys 'unknown') Those properties further qualify the nature of what is unknown. (E.g. specifying a use code of "H" and a URL prefix of "tel:" to convey that it is the home phone number that is unknown.)

Explanation of the columns that may appear on this page:

Lvl A few code lists that FHIR defines are hierarchical - each code is assigned a level. For value sets, levels are mostly used to organize codes for user convenience, but may follow code system hierarchy - see Code System for further information
Source The source of the definition of the code (when the value set draws in codes defined elsewhere)
Code The code (used as the code in the resource instance). If the code is in italics, this indicates that the code is not selectable ('Abstract')
Display The display (used in the display element of a Coding ). If there is no display, implementers should not simply display the code, but map the concept into their application
Definition An explanation of the meaning of the concept
