A cycle in which corrections (changes) are made to a record according to an existing edit/imputation strategy. If there are logical inconsistencies in the strategy or software contains error, then it may be possible for a record to pass through the edit/imputation software and still fail edits. If the record fails at the end of a cycle, then it is sent through the edit/imputation software subroutines until it passes or until a pre-determined number of cycles has been exceeded.
