Timeliness is helpful to check if the extent the article describes the current state of a certain reality (degree to which information is up-to-date).
Information on certain topics may change with time (living people, populated places etc.), therefore it is important that the article has actual data. Some measures can help to assess this dimension: number of unique editors and number of contributions for the last selected time. Measures of this quality dimension can be related to currency and volatility of the information.
Timeliness is one of the quality dimensions of Wikipedia articles.
For this dimension we must take into the account measure related to number of recent changes of whole infobox and its individual parameters. As in the case of Wikipedia articles, timeliness measures can be related to currency and volatility of the infoboxes.
