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.
