Data Integrity

Integrity ensures that the data in a database is both accurate and complete, in other words, that the data makes sense. There are at least five different types of integrity that needs to be considered:

  1. Domain constraints
  2. Entity integrity
  3. Column constraints
  4. User-defined integrity constraints
  5. Referential integrity

The data analysis stage will identify the requirements of these.
