Many people confuse data precision with accuracy, but it’s important to understand each and the differences, especially when applied to data quality. Precision is defined as the exactness of the measurement. A highly precise television would reflect minute differences in colors with incredibly high pixel resolution. In data quality, precision assesses the depth of detail that is encoded in the data. To strengthen the definition, one may ask themself, “how tightly can my data be defined?”
Data coverage means that all the right data is available and included. Having full data coverage doesn’t necessarily mean that the entire data set is fully exhaustive or that every value is accessible, but rather that the data is available for a necessary purpose.
