Data Quality standard released for exposure
The IAAO Board of Directors approved a new standard on Data Quality
for exposure to the membership. Comments on the proposed standard should be sent to IAAO by March 12, 2021. The draft IAAO Standard on Data Quality defines quality requirements for critical elements of assessment data and provides guidance for meeting those requirements for use in mass appraisal. Assessment data for the purposes of this standard can be separated into property characteristic, economic, and geographic. The standard would address quality for both the collection of new inventory and the management of existing inventory. For all types of assessment data, this standard outlines the general requirements for accuracy, currency, consistency, and completeness. Comments on the proposed standard should be sent to Paul Bidanset (firstname.lastname@example.org
), IAAO Valuation Research Project Manager and staff liaison to the Data Quality Standard Phase II Task Force that recently completed the standard.
