Test yourself!
The Wikidata entry for a city includes a statement that gives the population in 2000. You have an updated estimate from 2017. You should:
  1. Change the value and the reference. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! This may seem like the correct thing to do, but adding a qualifier is a better way to express this information.
  2. Change the value and leave everything else the same. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! You want to preserve the data that came before, so removing it is not a good option.
  3. Leave a note on the Discussion page asking someone to update the entry. (click to expand or collapse)
    INCORRECT! Although seeking advice and consensus on Discussion pages is always a good idea, you can make this change yourself.
  4. Add a new qualifier statement that gives the 2017 population and change the rank to reflect that this is the most current value. (click to expand or collapse)
    CORRECT! Adding a qualifier is a great way to update populations. Qualifiers allow you to add more values to the same property, in this case, population
