data (uncountable) or plural noun

  1. plural form of datum: Pieces of information.
  2. (uncountable, collectively) Information, especially in a scientific or computational context.
    • 1992, Rudolf M. Schuster, The Hepaticae and Anthocerotae of North America: East of the Hundredth Meridian, volume V, page vii
      With fresh material, taxonomic conclusions are leavened by recognition that the material examined reflects the site it occupied; a herbarium packet gives one only a small fraction of the data desirable for sound conclusions. Herbarium material does not, indeed, allow one to extrapolate safely: what you see is what you get []
    • 2013 June 22, “Snakes and ladders”, The Economist, volume 407, number 8841, page 76: 
      Risk is everywhere. [] For each one there is a frighteningly precise measurement of just how likely it is to jump from the shadows and get you. “The Norm Chronicles” [] aims to help data-phobes find their way through this blizzard of risks.
  3. (computing) A representation of facts or ideas in a formalized manner capable of being communicated or manipulated by some process.

Usage notesEdit

  • This word is more often used as an uncountable noun with a singular verb than as a plural noun with singular datum.
  • The definition of data in the computing context is from an international standard vocabulary and is meant to distinguish data from information. However, this distinction is largely ignored by the computing profession.[1]

Usage notesEdit

  • The first definition is rarely inflected, but most often used in its basic form. In the definite form, both neuter (datat) and common gender (datan) forms are used. For the compound indata, Google yields 440,000 hits, but only 2110 for indatan and 1200 for indatat. The Latin singular datum is not used in this sense, because it is already Swedish for date (in the calendar).
  • Swedish lacked a good and short word for computer until dator was proposed in 1968. The colloquial "data" was used in the 1960s and survived into the 1980s. Confusing enough, dator is also the plural of data, and the plural definite forms datorerna/datorna are very similar.
