Chapman, David W.; Boothroyd, Roger A.
Comparative Education Review, v32 n4 p416-29 Nov 1988
Contends that, in developing countries, attention must be paid to the quality of data going into computer-based information management systems; otherwise implementation of the system may provide only a deceptively systematic procedure for making random decisions. Examines errors, assumptions, inabilities, and omissions that threaten data quality in such settings. (DHP)
