3.    What is the Staged data?
Staged data is where you store the intermediate or final results within your EDQ space, it’s like a EDQ table which stores the Processed data from the processes

4.     What is the different between Staged data and Reference data?
Staged data is used to store the data being processed or the final data after processing and considered as working data.
Reference data is something which you refer with some values in the working data and get the other corresponding values from the reference data in a same record.
Ex: Suppose you have country in your working data as “United States of America” and for the country code, you look up in the Reference data with Country name and get country code, where you have already stored all country and corresponding codes.
