Open data

How you can use the data

The government has published some information and advice about how you should use the information we publish on open data.

See guidance for using open data on GOV.UK

Our advice

We encourage you to use and re-use the information that is available with only a few conditions:

  • Some data might be removed, known as redacted - for example, personal information that could identify an individual or information that is commercially sensitive. We do this to comply with the Freedom of Information Act and data governance.
  • We take care to ensure that the data is accurate. However, you should make your own checks before relying on the data.
