Organising and Designing Quantitative Data

Quantitative data

1. Introduction

The organisation and storage of quantitative data are often challenging and complex tasks that require specialist software and tools as well as careful conceptualisation and documentation. Taking some time over choosing the right tools and thinking about data structures from the outset can go a long way. Unfortunately it will not automatically make the task a simple one, but it can help to make better data, with better documentation, to ensure future preservation and access and easier re-use (including by yourself!).
