Definition: A data storage model or template that defines the attributes for a specific type or range of values. It acts to formalize the requirements for data of specific types so that all of the attributes needed to process the data are known by a receiver. This includes simple types such as integer, boolean, and string as well as complex types such as quantity and coded value.
Reference Definition: A data storage model or template that defines the attributes for a specific type or range of values. It acts to formalize the requirements for data of specific types so that all of the attributes needed to process the data are known by a receiver. (HL7 SAIF-IF)
Reference Definition: In computer programming, a data type is a classification identifying one of various types of data, such as floating-point, integer, or Boolean, that determines the possible values for that type; the operations that can be done on values of that type; the meaning of the data; and the way values of that type can be stored.

Reference Definition: a set of distinct values, characterized by properties of those values and by operations on those values. (ISO 11404)
Reference Definition: Data type values stand for themselves, the value is all that counts, neither identity nor state or changing of state is defined for a data value. (HL7 Data Types)
Reference Definition: A data type is a type whose instances are identified only by their value. A DataType may contain attributes to support the modeling of structured data types. A typical use of data types would be to represent programming language primitive types or CORBA basic types. For example, integer and string types are often treated as data types.
