Comments/Overview of Submission

This is the initial draft of the data quality dimensions table developed by the DQC. A number of recent publications have adapted previous models or developed new models to describe clinical data quality in the context of clinical trials or clinical research. The table is a synopsis of wide range of clinical data quality dimensions along with potential quantitative data quality assessment methods. We would appreciate your input into developing a consensus set of core data quality definitions, operational measures of these definitions, and recommendations for reporting the results of data quality measures in a human- and computer-interpretable format.

Comments are requested on:

  • clarity of the content;
  • suggestions for topics, issues, or other items that should be addressed;
  • strengths and weaknesses of the dimensions presented; and,
  • general reactions to the table.

Comments and suggestions may be provided by downloading the document and submitting a new version, and/or submitting a comment on the main DQC writing collaborative page. For more information or to learn how you can get involved in the DQC, please contact
