Abstract

Prior research has shown that supplying decision-makers with data quality (DQ) tags, metadata about the quality of data used in decision-making, can impact decision outcomes in certain circumstances. However, there is conflicting evidence as to how or when decision outcomes are affected. In order to improve experimental soundness, the current research addresses possible sources of ambiguity in previous DQ tagging experiments with respect to DQ tag design. In particular, usability, semantics, and the rationale for assigning DQ values are explicitly considered in the DQ tag design of experiments. DQ tag values are designed to test the question of whether DQ tag impact is influenced by the rela..
