One of the best ways to demonstrate

compression is to look at the difference between a Fine JPG and a Basic JPG. The basic JPG uses the highest compression and as you can actually see there is a difference in quality between the two.

When it comes to RAW, I cannot see the difference, but I am sure that any compression results in loss of data as it is exhibited with jpgs. I read somewhere that there is no truly lossless compression.
So with that in the back of my mind, I tend to shoot full RAW all the time.
