‘Data’. A data is a collection of numbers gathered to give some information.
Organisation of Data
We will understand it with the help of an example.
A teacher wants to know the choice of food of each student as part of the mid-day meal programme. The teacher assigns the task of collecting this information to Maria. Maria does so using a paper and a pencil. After arranging the choices in a column, she puts against a choice of food one ( | ) mark for every student making that choice.
