Australian Productivity Commission to conduct enquiry into open data



The Australian Productivity Commission will conduct a 12-month public inquiry to investigate ways to improve the availability and use of public and private sector data.

The Commission is required to:

  • look at the benefits and costs of making public and private datasets more available
  • examine options for collection, sharing and release of data
  • identify ways consumers can use and benefit from access to data, particularly data about themselves
  • consider how to preserve individual privacy and control over data use.

Think about making a submission.
