This webinar is an introduction to the new QAMyData tool for health-checking your numeric data, recently launched in November 2019.

The tool uses automated methods to detect and report on some of the most common problems found in survey or numeric data, such as missingness, duplication, outliers and direct identifiers. The open source tool helps data creators and users quality assess a numeric data file using a comprehensive list of ‘tests’, classified into types: file, metadata, data integrity, and direct identifiers. Popular file formats can be tested, including SPSS, Stata, SAS and CSV. The test configuration feature allows the creation of your own unique Data Quality Profile, that can play a useful role in your ‘FAIR’ data checking.
