About Data Quality Online
The value of data, especially statistical data, is in its quality,
commonly referred to as "fitness for purpose". That is, whether you
can use the data for the purpose you had in mind.
The purpose of the this website is to assist you to clearly
communicate the key characteristics of the data which impact on
quality through the drafting of a Data Quality Statement.
The Data Quality Statement uses the
ABS Data Quality Framework
to reflect a broad and inclusive approach to data quality.
A Data Quality Statement produced using the Online Tool promotes
data use and re-use by:
making information on data quality visible and accessible
increasing the metadata available to accompany data
encouraging a consistent and methodical approach to assessing data
