SULINGITUK GOVERNMENT: Data cleaning

Fictional Case Study

During data processing, the data cleaning team encounters a situation where they discover duplicate names with different birthdates and the use of nicknames that match birth dates but do not align with legal names on the membership list. These discrepancies raise concerns about the accuracy of the data, as the data cleaning team lacks the necessary community knowledge to verify the identity of these individuals in the membership list.

To address this issue, the data cleaning team compiles a list of questionable entries and organizes a meeting with the enumeration team, all of whom are Sulingituk community members.

This effort aims to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the membership data, fostering a more reliable foundation for the analysis phase
