Metadata is data that describes other data. Meta is a prefix that in most information technology usages means "an underlying definition or description." Metadata summarizes basic information about data, which can make finding and working with particular instances of data easier.

Meta data refers to information about data. Example in SQL varchar (5), 5 specifies more about the expected data. Data type is varchar with a length of 5
