Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults aged 40 and older who had ever had a Cologuard test (COLGEV) and had ever had a home blood stool test (BSTHEV), COLGBST indicates whether the home blood stool test was conducted as part of a Cologuard test.
Refer to COLGEV for more information on Cologuard testing variables.
The 2018 Field Representative's Manual noted: "Cologuard is a new type of stool test to check for colon cancer. Unlike other stool tests, Cologuard looks for changes in DNA in addition to checking for blood in your stool. The Cologuard test is shipped to your home in a box that includes a container for your stool sample."
