This document details the specific data quality and veto choices made for the CBC Search for systems with total mass between 2 and 45 solar masses, minimum of 1 solar mass in each component, performed on data from LIGO's fifth science run (S5). This science run took place over two years, and the analyses were performed in three pieces. The first year was analyzed while the second year of data was being taken. Officially, the first year is defined from GPS times 815155213 (Nov 04 2005 16:00:00 UTC) to 846691214 (Nov 04 2006 16:00:00 UTC). The remaining year was divided into two portions, the first of which is referred to henceforth as "months 12-18": 846691214 (Nov 04 2006 16:00:00 UTC) to 863557214 (May 18 2007 21:00:00 UTC). The second half of the second year is referred to as the LIGOVirgo run: 863557214 (May 18 2007 21:00:00 UTC) - 875232014 (Oct 01 2007 00:00:00 UTC). During the LIGOVirgo run, data from the Virgo interferometer was also analyzed, though data quality and veto choices for this interval are not discussed in this document.
