What is Data and Information?

Data is the term, that may be new to beginners, but it is very
interesting and simple to understand. It can be anything like
name of a person or a place or a number etc. Data is the name
given to basic facts and entities such as names and numbers.
The main examples of data are weights, prices, costs, numbers
of items sold, employee names, product names, addresses, tax
codes, registration marks etc.

Information: Information is data that has been converted

into a more useful or intelligible form. It helps human beings
in their decision making process. Examples are: Time Table,
Merit List, Report card, Headed tables, printed documents,
pay slips, receipts, reports etc. The information is obtained by
assembling items of data into a meaningful form.

For example, marks obtained by students and their roll
numbers form data, the report card/sheet is the information.
