Data and information are used interchangeably but they are quite different.
Consider this example: when a student is admitted at school he/she fills a form with details such as parents names, date of birth, place of domicile , address, phone number and so on, those details are referred as data.
When such data are used by the school authority then the school get the information about a particular student.
Data can be defined as facts about something that can be used in calculating, reasoning or planning.
Data (Input) is a collection of unprocessed items, which can include text, numbers, images, audio, and video which are later processed into information.
Information conveys meaning to users , it is also known as processed data (output).
Data is any collection of numbers, characters or other symbols that has been coded into a format that can be input into a computer and processed.
Data on its own has no meaning or context. It is only after processing by a computer that data takes on a context and becomes information.
Therefore information is an organized data which give meaningful sentence or statement.
