The following options can be specified as part of the option parameter. Each option is specified as a key/value pair. The list of available names is shown below, along with a description of the allowable values for that name.

GeneralScorer.MatchLevel

GeneralScorer.MatchLevel

The minimum match level between the name supplied in the input record and the name in our reference data files. This can be one of the following values:

Value Description
S This allows matching to be made at Surname level. This means that the person is assumed to have moved to a new address if anyone with the same surname at the supplied address is found to have moved. This is useful where you have a large number of missing or possibly inaccurate initials or forenames, but is not generally recommended as it can lead to a high number of false positives.
I (default) This forces matching to be made at Initial level. This means that the first initial must match as well as the surname. Where no first initial is passed into the service then no match can be made. This provides a more accurate match but can lead to a lower hit rate compared to surname level matching.
F This forces matching to be made at Forename level. The entire forename as supplied to the service must match the forename on our movers data. If no forename or only an initial is passed into the service then no match can be made. This provides the most accurate match but gives a much lower hit rate, as many of the records on our movers data only include initials.
