The fact that Data Quality (DQ) depends on the context, in which data are produced, stored and used, is widely recognized in the research community. Data Warehouse Systems (DWS), whose main goal is to give support to decision making based on data, have had a huge growth in the last years, in research and industry. DQ in this kind of systems becomes essential. This work presents a proposal for identifying DQ problems in the domain of DWS, considering the different contexts that exist in each

The main contributions of this work are a thorough literature review about how contexts are used for evaluating DQ in DWS, and a proposal for assessing DQ in DWS through context-based DQ metrics.
