Knowing how important data quality is not enough. It helps if you’re doing something about it. The key is to identify the frame work within which you build your data. According to The Bank of England, there are 6 types of data quality dimensions, which are listed below:
- Relevance: Relevance is the degree to which statistics meet current and potential users’ needs.
- Accuracy: Accuracy in the general statistical sense denotes the closeness of computations or estimates to the exact or true values
- Timeliness and Punctuality: Timeliness reflects the length of time between availability and the event or phenomenon described. Punctuality refers to the time lag between the release date of data and the target date when it should have been delivered
- Accessibility and Clarity: Accessibility refers to the physical conditions in which users can obtain data. Clarity refers to the data’s information environment including appropriate metadata
- Comparability: Comparability aims at measuring the impact of differences in applied statistical concepts and measurement tools/procedures when statistics are compared between geographical areas, non-geographical domains, or over time
- Coherence: Coherence of statistics is their adequacy to be reliably combined in different ways and for various uses
