Abstract For the Coronary Artery Surgery Study (CASS), large variable amounts of data on different form-types are collected on many different patients. In this paper, we describe C2, a “state-of-the-art” command-oriented data base system developed in response to the needs of maintaining a large complex data base and performing subsequent analyses on a large number of studies. C2 provides a friendly, interactive interface with the researcher as well as a powerful method for data extraction, data transformation, and the merging of files from the CASS data base.
