/ health statistics
Spanish term or phrase: en subregistro
Usage: Mexico. Sentence: "Se estima que existen 51 914 casos acumulados con 6 000 en subregistro." This is with regard to health statistics. Though it is the only instance in which the phrase occurs in my text, I find "en subregistro" quite frequent in Mexican documents. Does this mean, not registered/documented (how then do they know), registered in a particular way, inadequately registered? TIA to anyone who can clarify.
