Having data that are rich and of excellent quality is one of the important reasons for the scientific success of the MPIDR. The amount of data available has always been a priority. However, today, when vast amounts of data are available on the Internet, having a lot of data is not enough. Data can be inaccurate, incomplete, or inconsistent; or they could come from questionable sources. That is why the DataLab is primarily interested in not just the amount of data collected, but having data of the highest possible quality and accuracy.Detailed description
