Routine Data Quality Audit toolkit

Every data collection system is prone to errors, resulting from design oversights or human errors during data collection, processing, and transmission.

When used routinely, a data quality audit is one of the best measures used to improve data integrity once data has been collected and before it is used for important decisions.

3. Develop action plans to improve data management and quality.
