We use the term data set 
to refer to any group of data elements with a common root
(user or user.name for example). We use the term data
structure to talk about the type of data elements in a data
set. So, for example, telecom is a data structure. The
data set user.home-info.telecom uses the telecom
data structure. 

Does this help?
