      Background:

      Current value set is consistent with USCDI birth sex ,  and referenced terminology 

      "UNK" subsumes "ASKU"  (see codesystem below) and is used for all flavors of  unknown.  However, there is a consensus among implementers that is can be supported.

      Decision: 

      Will add ASKU to valueset

      Follow up:

      Recommend ONC update USCDI guidance and VSAC stewards update the valuset.
