An important aspect of the work of Open Cleveland is highlighting access to local government data. Code for America, Sunlight Foundation, and the Open Knowledge Foundation launched the U.S. City Open Data Census in 2014 as a tool for cities and community members to compare the openness of local government data relative to other US cities. Any community member can contribute to the Open Data Census by submitting a request that will be reviewed for accuracy. The Open Data Census (be patient, the page may load slowly) for Cleveland gives a picture of the openness of local data as it looks today and will evolve over time. Submissions from the local community are welcome.
