Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2012-12-03


Type of quality evaluation and a component in the MCHP Data Quality Framework. This component encompasses concepts of accuracy and validity, both used to determine the usability of data for project-specific analyses. As opposed to measures of database-specific quality, which are applied to the entire database, measures of project-specific quality are applied to the cohort, region, or time period that is the focus of a project.
