Components of data citation:
It is important to know that data citation is required when you are using a dataset or statistical table in your academic work/assignments, just as what you need to do with journal articles and other types of publications. By citing data and statistical files, you are helping your readers to identify and locate the original data and also giving credits to the original author/researcher.
