Template:Undue precision

(This figure is unduly precise)

Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template is used for specious precision in data. Such data is inappropriate because it gives a false indication of the state of knowledge of the subject. This typically occurs because a calculation was made without considering significant figures; this is not uncommon when converting between systems of units, such as imperial to metric.

If 'section' is indicated, {}, this template will display a banner. Otherwise it will create an in-line note.

Articles tagged with this template are listed at Category:Data with undue precision.
