#LYD17Message of the Day: Data quality is the degree to which data meets the purposes and requirements of its use. Depending on the uses, good quality data may refer to complete, accurate, credible, consistent, or “good enough” data.
Good data quality needs to be planned for and managed throughout the data lifecycle. Poor quality data can lead to incorrect analysis, misleading findings, and compromise the integrity of your research.
Love Your Data week is right around the corner on February 13-17, 2017! The purpose of the Love Your Data (LYD) campaign is to raise awareness and build a community to engage on topics related to research data management, sharing, preservation, reuse, and campus-based research data services.
This year's theme is about data quality for researchers at any stage in their career. Each day will have a message and activity to help drive the conversation.
