What standards for data quality apply?
New to the forums... Have searched for posts discussing obligations data publishers might have concerning letting people know what data quality tests have been applied to their datas, and how confident they are about accuracy, completeness, etc. This should be information that is useful and interesting to most data consumers. And crucial to certain consumers. Are there any protocols around this, or being developed, that you know of?
To declare my interest, I sit on ISO 8000 committee for Data Quality, and I am researching the DQ dimension of Linked Data.
Data quality standards
I'm assuming you are aware of the Code of Practice for Official Statistics, but just in case.... Principle 4 (Sound methods and assured quality) directs how producers of National and Official Statistics should assure quality and publish relevant details for users to see. http://www.statisticsauthority.gov.uk/assessment/code-of-practice/index.html
An example of what this means in practice can be found on HMRC's trade data website uktradeinfo here: https://www.uktradeinfo.com/Statistics/NonEUOverseasTrade/Pages/NonEuOTS.aspx in the Metadata tab as part of the monthly Overseas Trade Statistics release. There are further links (left hand menu) to policies, methodologies and quality assurance.
Hope this helps!
