What is Data Structure?

by Team Goseeko

Data structure is a way of storing and arranging information so that it can be more useful.

Arrays, Pointers, Structures, Linked Lists, Stacks, Queues, Graphs, Searching, Sorting, and Programs are among the topics covered in our Data Structure tutorial.

The data structure’s name suggests that it’s used to organize data in memory. There are several ways to arrange data in memory, as we’ve seen with one of the data structures, the array in C. A set of memory elements in which data is stored sequentially, i.e. one after the other, is known as an array.


The following are some of the most common operations that can be performed on data structures:

  • Searching – Any entity in a data structure can be searched for.
  • Sorting – A data structure’s elements can be sorted in either ascending or descending order.
  • Insertion – The new element may also be added to a data structure.
  • Updation – We may also substitute the element with another element if we want to change it.
  • Deletion – To remove an element from the data structure, we can use the delete operation.


The following are some of the benefits of using a data structure:

  • Efficiency – If the data structure for implementing a specific ADT is chosen correctly, the software would be very effective in terms of time and space.
  • Reusability – The data structures are reusable, which means they can be used by many client systems.
  • Abstraction – The level of abstraction is determined by the data structure defined by an ADT. Since the client cannot see how the data structure works from the inside, it does not need to be concerned about the implementation. Only the GUI is visible to the client.
