Data Metrics

Hi,
does anyone know about approaches to theories on the definition of
a metric for data?

Something like measuring the "distance" between two records, based
on the data they contain, NOT on the repository (their "physical" distance
on a hard disk plate, which wouldn't be that sensical anyway).

Please, I know this is an uncharted terrain, so communication is not so
straight forward.
Telling me ... "use fuzzy logic".. when a metric theory approach hasn't
been defined for a fuzzy set is not helpful.

If you have thought about it, what could mean it?

Thanks

Camilo
