Inaccuracies and inconsistencies in the data not only can render the analysis inaccurate and unreliable but can also lead to incorrect inferences regarding the relationships being investigated. If these incorrect inferences are applied to business decisions, an employer could unintentionally create the very situation it was trying to remedy.
