Derivation of the CFSR Composite Scores (Generic Version)
The following materials allow States the opportunity to write code to independently derive the CFSR Composite Scores using the software of your choice. This document provides instructions for writing software code to derive the CFSR Composite Scores. The logical steps in these instructions can be coded in the software tool of your choice. As this document is used by the field, future edits for clarity can be expected, however, material changes are not anticipated.
