Data vs Information | Insight Article

Many mistaken the two words as similar, when they are very much so different. Data is defined as:

da·ta
/ˈdadə,ˈdādə/
noun
facts and statistics collected together for reference or analysis.
Meaning the raw subjects, nothing done to it, nothing manipulated, just variables that are gathered for a purpose. The definition of data now leads into what Information actually is: making data useful. Information is defined as:
in·for·ma·tion
ˌinfərˈmāSH(ə)n/
noun
facts provided or learned about something or someone.
There has to be some significance to the data in order for it to be Information. At Words & Numbers Ltd. strive to collect the best data in order to produce useful and precise information to cater to your target population. Knowing the sound difference and connection between data and information makes all the difference in the end results that we are here to help you achieve for your organization.
Cheers,
