Karen Jacobsen urges critical thinking about data quality at JIPS Conference

June 2017

Karen Jacobsen gave a keynote address at the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) Conference: Making Data Useful in June 2017. In her address, she notes that “if the data we collect is weak, due to biases such as incoherent translation, non-representative sampling, lack of verification, then the knowledge we create from it is also weak.” She urged that the localization agenda should be at the forefront of efforts to improve data quality and use.
