ELECTIVE indicates whether the admission to the hospital was elective. This information was derived from the type of admission (ATYPE). If the admission type indicated an elective admission (ATYPE = 3), then ELECTIVE was set to 1. If the admission type was missing or invalid, then ELECTIVE is also missing or invalid.
