An example of a data quality issue with a dataset. There are only 5 Boroughs in NYC, but the dataset listed 6. Forty (40) data points were not in one of the 5 boroughs. These were classified as borough ‘Unknown’. Based on where they are located on the Map maybe they are located in Nassau County? The dataset doesn’t include any information about borough 6.
