Commons to look at data and statistics

The House of Commons Public Administration Select Committee has announced an inquiry into data and statistics.

The Public Administration Select Committee (PASC) is conducting an inquiry into statistics and open data in Government, with a focus on the progress of the Government in implementing its Open Data strategy. This is part of PASC's programme of work on statistics and their use in government.

Details of the questions they intend to address are here. Unfortunately, the questions seem to be more about data than the use of questionable statistical procedures, but there is plenty of scope to raise the difficulties over, say, the lack of quality control in CRUTEM.

Can I post problems I found with the CRUtem3 dataset here? They're often very large.

You have to wonder why that station was included, right? There's another Santa Cruz station, in the same place, and with much more data. The really odd thing is how the data from the station above (879140) matches the gaps from the station below (879120).

Sorry about the repost. Given "it's easier to get forgiveness than approval", I'm going to carry on: you can always delete them.

Here's the CRUtem3 header for Sheffield:-

Station ID, Lat(x10), Long(x10), Alt, Location, Start/End, Source/firstgoodyear
33400 534 15 -999 SHEFFIELD UK 18821978 101882

The Met Office also published data for this station - and it's indistinguishable from the CRUtem3 data - except that it continues to 2010 (when I dl-ed it from the MO).

Why does the CRU delete 30 plus years of MO data?

(I can post the data if anyone wants it.)

Here's a difference table showing the difference between Met Office stats for
Wick (1914 - 1947) and those from the CRUtem3 dataset. [For the period
1948 - 1990 these two sets were essentially the same.]

Now, since the MO is the orignal source why did CRU change the data, and
why did they do it in such a systematic way?
