This page gathers relevant quality dimensions and ideas for corresponding metrics

Sources:


Availability

  • Yes/no, maybe with explanation why the data is not available (privacy, security, archived, lost, not yet captured etc.)
  • Open/restricted/registration, again possibly with explanation
  • For access/re-use
  • Indication of persistence and longevity

Processability

  • Level on the 5-star scale (although there were opinions that it is dangerous to attach value to the linking because the data might be good but link to ‘bad’ data)
  • Links to metadata standards used and data model/schema to enable automatic processing

Cluster accuracy/consistency/relevance

it might be useful to include some information about the context (e.g. why was the data created and what purpose is it supposed to serve).

Completeness

Conformance

Credibility

Timeliness
