Open data and transparency

The coalition government committed to an agenda of greater transparency and accountability of government by making information available to you. We adopted the following principles in support of this.

  1. We are committed to fostering a culture of openness and will, where practicable, make open to the public data that is collected or created to support its day-to-day business;
  2. We will not release data where doing so would breach any laws (particularly those related to individual's privacy);
  3. We will endeavour to make this data easy to access in a format that is machine readable using open standards and may be re-used in accordance with the terms of the specified licence (Open Government Licence, Non-commercial Government Licence, or Charged Licence).

Our published datasets are listed below.
