Data compression can be defined as encoding the information using the small number of bits rather than original representation. Compression is a technique used for reducing data size by manipulating data redundancy; so that the packet transmission time and storage cost can be reduced. This can be achieved with the use of suitable data compression algorithms. Choosing the right algorithm can be accomplished by analyzing the performance of the algorithm. This paper presents the survey of various lossless data compression algorithms.
