- This algorithm looks at the record’s component and determines whether that component is contained in the record it is attempting to match.
- Returns true if one record’s component is contained in another record.

- Hybrid Deduper, where a single incoming record can quickly be evaluated independently against each record in an existing large master database.
- Batch or Enterprise runs where the first component allows efficient clustering.
- Databases where unrecognized keyword variations appear in some of the records.
- When the entire value or string of one is contained in the other.
Not Recommended For
- Short name string comparison.
- Gather/scatter, survivorship, or record consolidation of sensitive data.
- Quantifiable data or records with proprietary keywords not associated in our knowledgebase tables.
Do Not Use With
- UTF-8 data. This algorithm was ported to MatchUp with the assumption that a character equals one byte, and therefore results may not be accurate if the data contains multi-byte characters.
