Obtaining Accurate and Compelling Data: Challenges and Importance

The purpose of this presentation is to discuss and highlight issues that lead to variability during the process of collecting, determining suitability, storing, updating and analysis of data for decision-making purposes.

Regardless if data is collected from operations, real-time feeds, or from computer-based / database warehousing, data often has further multi-faceted uses beyond the primary purposes of the original researcher, investigator, or analyst. Consequently, this presentation posits that a user’s knowledge of data accuracy from secondary data is likely not commensurate with its importance in terms of subsequent analysis and down-stream decisions resulting from secondary data set(s).
