What You'll Learn

Data quality is a fundamental issue for data science that can be measured in many different ways. Whether the data is stored in a relational database, a hierarchical file, or in key/value pairs, the reliability of your analysis depends on the quality of the data involved. In this talk, Joe Sremack will discuss what data quality is, the categories in which data quality can be measured, and common data quality issues. Sample data and Python code will be shown to illustrate what data quality issues are and how they can be identified.
