We identified 2,584,607 notes with one or more of the phrases, and annotated 1856 text snippets randomly selected from notes that contained any of the search terms. Each snippet contains a 35-word span before and after a firearm-relevant phrase. The annotation classifications for firearm access were the following: positive (ability to determine that the veteran had current access to at least one firearm); negative (language that the veteran did not have current access to any firearms); and ambiguous (there was insufficient evidence for either a positive or negative classification from the note – an example might be that the veteran owned a firearm but it was somewhere else). Each snippet was annotated by two of the authors and disagreement adjudicated by their consensus. An inter-annotator agreement was calculated. The annotated snippets served as the reference standard in training and testing.
