DEFINITIONS OF HIGH VALUE PUBLIC DATA
Data is factual information (as measurements or statistics) used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or calculation or information in numerical form that can be digitally transmitted or processed (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/data).
Agencies publish data in a variety of re-usable and less re-usable formats, for example, databases, datasets, spreadsheets, tables in reports.
Note that any published data with totals, averages and other aggregates is likely to meet the statutory definition of official statistics and would thus be managed under the provisions of the Statistics Act 1975.
Public data is non-personal, unclassified and non-confidential data:
- collected, commissioned or created by the agency in carrying out its functions or statutory responsibilities;
- publicly funded; and for which there is no restriction:
(a) in the case of copyright works, to its release and re-use, in accordance with NZGOAL , under any of the Creative Common NZ law licences, or(b) in the case of non-copyright material, to its open release and re-use.
High value public data released for re-use may have at least 1 of these outcomes:
Economic & social outcomes
- Business can use it to add value, innovate & create new products to spur economic growth.
- Communities and people can use it to:
- – develop useful applications/new services
- – make informed decisions about the government services they use
- – make personal decisions that improve their quality of life.
- It provides information about sustainability and risk.
Transparency & democratic outcomes
- It reports on the performance of an agency or service.
- It provides details of government funding and/or expenditure.
- It provides an evidence base informing & encouraging external participation in policy development.
- It supports cross-sector service delivery, e.g. other agencies & NGOs can use it to improve their services.
- Releasing it for re-use could:– make it easier for government agencies to work together– reduce the cost of providing an existing government service– reduce the cost of accessing and processing this information for existing users.
- It helps align central & local government initiatives through a more coordinated national view of government data.
