Abstract

Organizational databases have a significant rate of data errors and detecting and correcting these errors can be problematic. This paper builds on a stream of research demonstrating that users of these databases can detect data errors under certain circumstances. A theory of error detection and research on the effect of base rate expectations in probabilistic judgement tasks are applied to the development of two propositions about error detection. It is argued that expectations about the base rate of errors in data affect error detection performance when they are developed through direct experience and that incentives affect error detection performance. The two research propositions are tested in a laboratory experiment. Experience-based expectations about the base rate of errors and incentives are found to affect error detection performance.
