Australia’s Open Data Census Needs Your Support.


Australia’s Regional Open Data Census was launched as a beta web-site on International Open Data Day (21 Feb 2015). The census is a crowd-sourced measure of the openness of key data published by Australia’s states and territories. Openness is based on the answers provided to nine questions. Anyone can submit an assessment and an editorial team reviews each submission.

You can follow the project on Twitter, read about the launch on the Open Knowledge Australia blog and most importantly help out by contributing to the surveys which form the basis of the census data.

    Australia appears in the Global Open Data Index,

    Now we can see who is the most open, Australia’s Local, State or Federal governments.
