A couple methods used to determine if your data is reliable. First compare your data to similar studies. Do not rely on just on source, but research multiple sources on the same topic. You can feel fairly confident that the data is complete and accurate if they agree with each other. Second research the authors of any written data your using as well as the researchers involved in gathering the information. When conducting research for an essay or business proposition the researcher must have evidence that supports their writing from sources that can back up their ideas. There is no easy foolproof way to determine validity so you should use all of your reasoning skills and resources when dealing with suspect data.
