Data are "related items of (chiefly numerical) information considered collectively, typically obtained by scientific work and use for reference, analysis, or calculation."

Information is "knowledge communicated concerning some particular fact, subject, or event; that of which one is apprised or told; intelligence, news."

These definitions come from the Oxford English Dictionary, online version.
