Important Learnings from Data Statistics that Can Help Your Company

A man in a shirt and tie draws on what looks like a white board with words relating to data statistics.We live in an information age where data and content management are immense aspects of the business world. Following the importance of data, comes the importance of data quality - or the relative value of the data on a system. Just like an inefficient worker costs a company money, poor data quality squanders that same money. Data management and analytics help to navigate this complicated process.  

According to a 2013 survey by Garner, poor data quality costs a range of companies more than $14 million each year. Since then, the relevance of sound data quality has only risen. Let’s go through some noteworthy statistics on data quality before connecting them to your company.

Data Quality Statistics

  1. The annual cost of poor quality data in the US is $3.1 trillion (IBM)
  2. Bad data accounts for losses of more than 550 hours and up to $32,000 per staff member in the Marketing and Sales departments (DiscoverOrg)
  3. 25-30% of data becomes inaccurate each year meaning less impactful campaigns (MarketingSherpa)
  4. When averaged, it costs businesses $100 to maintain bad quality data, $10 to fix a duplication, and $1 to proactively prevent a duplicate (SiriusDecisions)
  5. Employees waste time on mundane data quality tasks at a rate of 50% for general knowledge workers and up to 80% for data scientists (MIT Sloan)
  6. On average, 40% of leads generated daily involve inaccurate data (Integrate)
  7. Of surveyed companies, 16% rate their data as “very good” whereas more than 25% would rate their data as “somewhat poor” or “very poor” (Dun & Bradstreet)
