ISO/IEC 25024:2015 defines data quality measures for quantitatively measuring the data quality in terms of characteristics defined in ISO/IEC 25012.
This International Standard contains the following:
? a basic set of data quality measures for each characteristic;
? a basic set of target entities to which the quality measures are applied during the data-life-cycle;
? an explanation of how to apply data quality measures;
? a guidance for organizations defining their own measures for data quality requirements and evaluation.
It includes, as informative annexes, a synoptic table of quality measure elements defined in this International standard (Annex A), a table of quality measures associated to each quality measure element and target entitiy (Annex B), considerations about specific quality measure elements (Annex C), a list of quality measures in alphabetic order (Annex D), and a table of quality measures grouped by characteristics and target entities (Annex E).
This International Standard does not define ranges of values of these quality measures to rate levels or grades because these values are defined for each system by its nature depending on the system context and users' needs.
This International Standard can be applied to any kind of data retained in a structured format within a computer system used for any kinds of applications.
People managing data and services including data are the primary beneficiaries of the quality measures.
