Open data and transparency

Open data involves the release of data so that anyone can access, use and share it. 

The data is available in both a ‘human-readable’ format , such as PDF, and in open ‘machine-readable’ format that is not dependent on any specific software, such as CSV or XML. 

You can download and use the data in a variety of ways. All that we ask is that you use it in accordance with the Open Government Licence which explains what you can and cannot do with the data.

Some data may be removed, known as redaction, to comply with Freedom of Information Act exemptions. For example, if the data includes personal information that could identify an individual or information that is commercially sensitive.

The data on this page can be used for research, reporting or publication. The information cannot be edited or used selectively to distort or misrepresent the data as a whole. 

Please see our Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015 guidance for more information about how to apply to reuse our data.
