10 Mar data
The plural of datum. A datum is a linguistic or numerical symbol representing something concrete or abstract. “1” is a datum and “1, 2, 3” is data. As soon as links are added, such as “400, 2000 , 3505” = “daily sales for Jan 1-3,” the data becomes information. Information and data are often mistakenly thought to be synonyms.
