This submission is valid, thank you Nisha Thompson for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Government has multiple data sources but websites are not easy to navigate or to find relevant/up to date data in one location (although appears to have a lot of information). B5 amended to no as data for different years split across several documents. B6 amended to no as unable to find recent & frequent data. Data found in Open Government Data Platform can be exported in variety of formats including XLS, XML, CVS, JSON, JSONP, ODS.
