Data and information are similar only because data is a raw form of information. Therefore, they are one and the same. Information differs because it is organized, whereas data is not.

Data consists of raw facts and figures. When that data is processedinto sets according to context, it provides information. For example, recording the temperature of your cla…ssroomcontinuously over a set period is data collection. From that datainformation may be derived, such as the highest, lowest, andaverage temperatures over that period. A computer follows instructions (a 'program') in order to process'data' into 'information', and can make possible the processing ofvastly greater amounts of data that can be achieved efficientlyotherwise.
they are spelt differently
Data is information.
Data is raw, unorganized facts that need to be processed. When data is processed, organized, structured or presented in a useful, it is called Information.
Comparison of Data and Information Data is form of information but information is not strictly data. Data is facts, figures or words and must be organized or interprete…d to become useful. Information is more organized with conclusions, etc.
data is a raw material that is processed to information while information is an already processed data.
Basically there is no difference. Data could be the numbers and fields in a spreadsheet, that would also be the information that you would want to convey via the spreadsheet. … Data is a collection of facts, such as values or measurements. Information is collection of some data. For an example : A mobile number is a data, but a list of mobile numbers is information.
Data is an unfinished process from a certain thing like computers. Information is the output of a data.
data and info are exactly the same things. Data and information are synonymous terms. They can both be used in place of one another.
Data is a raw-fact or an incomplete statement which is yet to become a meaningful thing whiles Information is a data that has been processed.
There is an "A" in the word Inform'a'tion where as there are As in Data Too. Secondly In Information There Is A "T" so is in Data! As Simple As Tha :D
Data is what is stored on a computer, disc or drive. Information is what we get from the data. Data is information, it can be stored anywhere. A computer is simply one place w…here it may be stored.
data any collection of facts and information an aggregation of data or meaning assigned to data as it is extended to be interpreted by people...
Data may be any thing but information is well managed data which have some meaning
it depends on what you define 'information' as. Data is basically binary code that can be read by a specific program.
Data is often viewed as the theory, a system of rules and procedures and assumptions used to create a result. A form of abstract knowledge or reasoning. Information then becom…es the knowledge communicated or received from the theory of the data, that is factual data. In modern times, data and information has become to mean the same thing. Just a series of observations, measurements and facts used in both theory and practise
The two are very similar and overlap each other. The difference is that while information is data, data is not necessarily information. Data may be hidden or be in a machine-r…eadable format while information is generally exposed and in a human-readable format.
