Standards for Data Quality Standards for Data Quality Presentation Transcript

  • Improving Information to Support Decision Making:
    Standards for
    Better Quality Data
    The key to better information to support decision making and accountability lies with the actions taken to foster a culture that values the quality of the data that underpins this information.
    Such a culture must be adopted at the very top of, and pervade, the whole organisation. Use the principles defined in these standards, to:
    • define the priorities for data quality;
    • assess arrangements for securing good quality data; and
    • develop working practices which deliver these objectives
