    Metadata

    Last Friday we learned about Metadata. If you googled metadata you would find that metadata is data about data. But that's the very simplified, almost incorrect definition. Metadata is the data on how we choose to categorize the data that we collect. That includes where the data comes from, how the data was collected, who the data was collected from, what kind of data it is (primary source or secondary source etc) and how we classify them based on all these factors.
