National Laws 60% open


What data is expected?

This data category requires all national laws and statutes to be available online, although it is not a requirement that information on legislative behaviour e.g. voting records is available.

  • Content of the law / status
  • Date of last amendment
  • Amendments to the law (if applicable)

How open is the data?

Very easy to identify all the required characteristics in the data set. As a reviewer, the only change I made was to indicate that each law is also available in HTML format, not just PDF.

This submission should be accepted because I could easily verify that the dataset contains all required characteristics.
