The print function allows you to
display and print the Acknowledgments document; structure, save and download
versions of the Taxonomy that have been customized to meet the needs of
specific communities; and download U.S. and Canadian English and Canadian
French versions of all Taxonomy displays (outline, hierarchy, alphabetical
display and thesaurus display), a related concepts report and two external
systems crosswalk displays that are created automatically by the system each
time the website is updated. Select the display you want to print and the
system will generate a file that you can download to your local computer for
off-line printing. All documents are in
PDF format, and have an assigned title, date of generation and copyright
notice. Print options include:
Acknowledgments document is a cumulative list of the source material for
Taxonomy definitions and structure that includes the contributions of people
who have supported the Taxonomy throughout its development as well as
bibliographic and other resources that have been used. It was drafted when work
on the Taxonomy was initially begun in 1983 and has been maintained since that
Custom Reports: Custom reports are on demand reports that you can structure, run and download
at your convenience. Options include:
- Full Taxonomy: This option features the entire Taxonomy
and allows you to enter a title for the report, choose the locale (U.S.
English, Canadian English, Canadian French), specify the format (organized
by code or term name), select the fields to include (definition, use
references, see also references, related concepts, external system terms,
comments and bibliographic references) and choose the Taxonomy levels you
wish to include.
- Filter Based Taxonomy Report: This option allows you to choose a
customized version of the Taxonomy created and saved using the Filters
function to determine which terms will be included in your report. You can
enter a title for the report, specify the locale and sort order, mark the
filter you want to apply, and select the fields and specify the levels you
wish to include as in the Full Taxonomy Report. All of the official and
community filters are available for this report as well as any private
filters your organization has created.
- Filter Outline Reports: This option allows you to identify a
locale, choose one of the available filters and request one of two types
of outline reports: the regular Outline and the Highlighted Starter Set, a
report that grays out higher level terms on a branch and shows in bold
type the lowest level terms on each branch that can be used for indexing
purposes. The outline reports provides an "at-a-glance" view of
the hierarchical structure and contents of the selected filter.
- Custom Related Concepts Report: This option allows you to choose one or
more the related concepts to determine the focus of the terms to be
included in your custom report. Related concepts are target groups, issues
or other concepts such as "Caregivers", "Homelessness",
"Long Term Care" and "Pregnancy" that are connected to
Taxonomy terms representing services that are typically associated with
these groups. You can specify the locale and sort order, and select the
fields and Taxonomy levels you want to include the report. Because level 1
terms and a large number of other higher level terms that would be used to
structure a hierarchical view have been omitted in many related concepts,
only the Sort by Name option should be used for this report format.
You can only have
one custom report on the server at any given time. If you want to run several,
you must delete each previous report before beginning a new one.
Reports: There are nine standard
reports that are automatically generated by the system for each of the three
locales whenever the website is updated.
- Outline: The Outline is organized by code and
includes all Taxonomy terms and codes. Its intent is to provide an
"at-a-glance" view of the hierarchical structure and contents of
- Hierarchy (Standard): The standard version of the Hierarchy
presents the Taxonomy in hierarchical format organized by Taxonomy code
and includes codes, terms, definitions and "see also"
references. It mirrors the hierarchical display in the printed Taxonomy
books which were published and sold before the Taxonomy website went live.
- Hierarchy (Complete): The complete version of the Hierarchy
adds "use" references (synonyms), related concepts, external
systems terms and codes, comments and bibliographic references to the
display available in the Hierarchy (Standard) option.
- Alphabetical Display (Standard): The standard version of the Alphabetical
Display sorts Taxonomy terms into alphabetical order. Definitions and
"see also" references are also shown. This display adds another
feature: "use" references. "Use" references are
synonyms for the preferred terms in the hierarchy and allow you to access
terms using the wording that is familiar to you. For example, 711 Services is a "use" reference for Telecommunication Relay Services.
Use references have reciprocal "used for" references which are
listed with the preferred wording for a term. You can get a complete list
of synonyms for any term by scrolling down to the term and looking at its
"used for" references. This document mirrors the alphabetical
display in the printed Taxonomy book.
- Alphabetical Display (Complete): The complete version of the Alphabetical
Display adds related concepts, external system codes, comments and
bibliographic references to the display available in the Alphabetical
Display (Standard) option.
- Thesaurus Display: The Thesaurus display presents the
Taxonomy in thesaurus format. Terms and use references are arranged
alphabetically as in the standard alphabetical display above. Other
Notes (SN), the equivalent of definitions.
Terms (BT), the term directly above a term in the hierarchy (the parent).
Terms (NT), the terms directly below a term in the hierarchy (the children).
Terms (RT), the equivalent of "see also" references.
- Related Concepts:
This report displays a list of
related concepts titles and associated Taxonomy terms and codes.
- External Systems Crosswalks: The Taxonomy is crosswalked to five
external classification systems: the
National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities (NTEE), the Nonprofit Program
Classification System (NPC), the United
Way of America Services Identification System
(UWASIS), the AIRS Problems/Needs List and the Canadian Problems/Needs
List. These documents are organized by external system, and within
external system, hierarchically by external system code or alphabetically
by external system term name. Associated Taxonomy terms and codes are
listed with each external system term. For more information about the NTEE
or the NPC, which are maintained by the National Center
for Charitable Statistics at The Urban Institute, click here: NCCS For more information about the AIRS
Problems/Needs List and its development, click here: AIRS Problems/Needs
