    • Data presented in a meaningful context
    • Data processed by summing, ordering, averaging, grouping, comparing, or other similar operations
    • A difference that makes a difference
    • Information is a collection of facts organized (or processed) in such a way that they have additional value (i.e., a list of the class grades based on the exam score)
  • In a way, information is data that has been transformed into a more useful form
