Big Policy Canvas Research Roadmap

[...] * These changes may occur in the measuring instruments or in the environmental conditions. Normally random errors tend to be distributed according to a normal or Gaussian distribution. One consequence of this is that increasing the size of your data helps to reduce random errors. However, this is not the case of systematic errors, which are not random and therefore they affect measurements in one specific way. In this case, errors are from the way how data are created and therefore very large datasets might blind researchers to this kind of errors.
