Data Dictionary

All Glossary Terms

A data dictionary is a collection of the technical names, definitions, and attributes used for data elements and models across an organization. Using a shared dictionary ensures that all data elements have the same quality, meaning, and relevance for all team members. Data dictionaries are helpful resources, especially for new hires working on complex projects like data wrangling, modeling, or database design.
