Australian Government Public Data Policy Statement
Publication author(s): Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
Publication abstract: Australia’s capacity to remain competitive in the digital economy is contingent upon its ability to harness the value of data. Data volumes are growing exponentially and so too is the potential value of this data. Publishing, linking and sharing data can create opportunities that neither government nor business can currently envisage.
Publishing appropriately anonymised government data will stimulate innovation and enable economic outcomes.
