Data Quality Statement Tool

This tool can be used by data users and providers in different settings, including government agencies, statistical agencies and research agencies.

For example, Data Quality Statements are being used by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) to assess the quality of performance indicator information linked to a number of National Agreements in key policy areas.

The Data Quality Statement Tool involves the following steps:

  • Identifying the data being assessed
  • Reviewing and Assessing the data against each of the seven dimensions
  • Creating a draft Data Quality Statement

Important Note:  Before you begin, you should obtain any explanatory notes, technical information or methodological papers about the data you wish to assess.
