Federal and Local Perspectives on Open Data

This morning's Government Analytics Breakfast forum welcomed Hyon Kim, Program Director at Data.gov and Rebbeca Williams, Senior Implementation Advisor at the Center for Government Excellence to discuss how the federal and state/local governments are promoting open data.

At the federal level, those in the Data.gov office have been working over the past few years to establish the site as a comprehensive and up-to-date catalog of all the datasets available from government agencies.  Agencies must now make their data machine-readable and provide complete metadata.  Data.gov is used by researchers across the public and private sectors to locate datasets for analysis to help solve meaningful problems.

City governments are likewise expanding their efforts to make data more available and of higher quality.  The What Works Cities initiative partners with mid-size cities to help them put best practices into place for data-driven decision making.  

As both federal and local public officials move forward to make government more open, transparent and accountable, policymakers will need to address the accompanying ethical and privacy issues.

A video of the recording can be viewed here.
