Attributes of Information


You can classify the value of the information by asking some questions of it. The acronym CRATA describes five values, Complete, Relevant, Accurate, Timely, and Accessible (I have yet to hear the phrase, “Is your data CRATA?”).

In addition to CRATA, I have seen two additional values used, Objective and Understandable. I struggled with Objective until I considered the definition, “not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice” at Dictionary.com. Fair enough!
