SUBJECT: 1900s: Miscellaneous EFFECTIVE: May 16, 2012
Section: 1901.5 Data Element Dictionary - Data Quality and Integrity

  1. Every NDUS employee who uses data as part of the employee's job (whether entering, extracting, analyzing or reporting data) is responsible for the quality of the data and using it as described in the data element dictionary.

  2. The NDUS System Information Technology Services is responsible for managing the Data Element Dictionary in consultation with NDUS institutions. The data elements include fields (dimensions) used in computer systems and calculations (facts) made with that data from which institution and university system reports are drawn. By standardizing the data going into the systems, and standardizing calculation formulas, reporting will be more reliable and comparable between campuses.
