Yes but as it is the data in Wikipedia, particularly in lists is of by 6 to 8%. In order for Wikidata to host the data, the data first has to be curated. Errors can be found on either side. So we have to be able to compare in order to know what to curate. That takes an effort for us to be effective in the curation.
I have moved a lot of data from Wikpedia to Wikidata and I refuse to edit Wikipedia because my experience is one of more hostility at that end. What I am looking for is collaboration not for myself to be on a lonely track fighting windmills.
