We need more eyes on our dental health dataMarc Tennant, Kate Dyson and Estie Kruger write:
Many Western democracies are moving to increase the public accessibility of information contained within government data sources. This move is opening raw data sets collected by State and quasi-State organisations to the public with appropriate privacy protection.
Government data, collected with taxpayer funding, is viewed as a civic resource to which public access is encouraged. A diverse range of datasets have become available in open format including weather, transport, ordinance, crime and policing, court sentencing, education and health data.
