|WikiProject Statistics||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
This page currently defines data collection within a fairly narrow context. The term is used much more broadly. See for example the range of articles classified under Category:Data collection --RichardVeryard 22:05, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
- I agree with him. In my opinion it should either be renamed to "Data collection (statistics)", or whatever field it fits in, either made a new lead section that covers all fields, and put the current content into one section. --ANDROBETA 08:42, 2 January 2011 (UTC)
- Yes, I came to this discussion about this issue. I am reluctant to edit, and a little busy at the moment, but if I get a minute I will come back and try to craft some language to put this definition in context of the broader definition. I'm afraid of opening a can of worms. Really the whole article needs revision. Or perhaps there is a broader discussion of scientific data collection which this could link to. I will check on that. --rdelwicheRdelwiche (talk) 05:53, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
