We are conducting a survey to better understand the ontology issues within
Wikidata and their impact on data reuse.
You may recall that in 2021 and 2022 we run the Data Quality Days, which
generated a lot of very useful discussions on the processes around
increasing/maintaining data quality and utility on Wikidata. We identified
various types of ontology issues, and we would like to get input on which
of these are the most problematic for you in your use of Wikidata's data.
This survey has two sections and will take 20-25 minutes to complete.
Optional open-ended questions may lengthen the completion time.
In the first section, we will present descriptions of the ontology issues
we have found. We will ask you to evaluate the impact of these issues on
your work, and you are also invited to share any other ontology issues you
have detected in case we missed them.
The second section focuses on how you use data from Wikidata. Most of the
questions in this section are optional, meaning you do not have to share
details of your work unless you find them relevant to the issues you would
like to share with us. They are helpful to us in understanding the context
of your issues better, however.
This survey is anonymous, but there is an optional email field at the end
for follow-up questions. Providing an email will make your responses not
completely anonymous. A summary of the results of the survey will be
published as a whole at Wikidata:Ontology issues prioritization
will not include any identifying information.

We kindly request your participation by Friday, February 17th at 23:59 UTC.
