4 Data Validation and Interpretation The purpose of monitoring is not merely to collect data, but to produce information that is useful for technical, policy, and public end-users. Raw data in themselves are of very limited utility. These data first need to be screened by validation and ratification and then collated to produce a reliable and credible dataset (WHO, 1994a,b,c; Kotlik and Vondruskova, 1996; CRC, 1997). Interpretation of data from any air pollution monitoring site should take into account the site situation and its implications.
