Client Master File


The Client Master File (CMF) is the primary source of demographic information on individuals receiving services funded by DDS. CMF data is collected by regional centers. CMF files have been archived on a monthly basis dating back to May 1992. However, the type of information collected in the CMF changed over the years. Not all of the data items currently collected are available for earlier years.
