Information Quality Decay - definition(s)

Information quality decay - The characteristic of data such that formerly accurate data will become not accurate over time because the characteristic about the real world object will change without a corresponding update to the data applied. For example, John Doe's marital status value of "single" in a database is subject to information quality decay and will become inaccurate the moment he becomes married.
