Raw data is a type of unprocessed computer data. This information can be stored in a file , or it is just a collection of numbers and characters that is stored somewhere in the computer’s hard disk .

For example, the information that should be entered into a database is called raw data. This data is either entered by a user or it is generated by a computer. Since it has not been processed by the computer in any way, it is considered ” raw data “. Whereas the data which is processed by the computer is called “cooked data”.
