Data Handling:

Data Handling means gathering and recording information and then presenting it in a way that is meaningful to others. The collection, recording, and presentation of data help us organise our experiences and draw inferences from them.

Data:

  • Data is the plural form of the Latin word ‘datum’.

  • Facts or figures, collected with a definite purpose, are called data.

  • Data can be defined as a collection of facts, numbers, or information from which conclusions may be drawn.

  • Data is usually collected in the context of a situation that we want to study.

  • For example, a teacher may like to know the average height of students in her class. To find this, she will write the heights of all the students in her class, organise the data in a systematic manner, and then interpret it accordingly.

  • Sometimes, data is represented graphically to give a clear idea of what it represents.
    For example, Pictograph, bar graph, and double bar graph, etc.
