Does this really defines data structure?

Data could be defined as a set of value or collection of items needed for an application or system to obtain an information while data structure is a level of data hierarchy that has string, array, record and union as its component. As simple as this definition is, some feels it is inadequate or insufficient to define data structure. While I am open minded regarding other definitions on this subject, I feel this is the simplest of all. However, a contrary opinion is highly welcomed.
