Data and information: The basics

Making a difference with data

A series of four booklets designed for novice users of data and information to train people new to the collection and use of data and information. The aim is to embed a basic knowledge, then hone an understanding of how and why data, and the information it provides, is of use in everyday practice and at an organisational level. The four booklets allow learning to be ‘chunked’ into manageable pieces.

Data and information: The basics is the first booklet in the series and covers basics such as the difference between data and information, commonly used terms and ways of presenting the information.

The booklets are:

  1. Data and information: The basics
  2. Data and information use – ethnicity
  3. Collecting data and using information well
  4. Using data and information at different levels
