OpenDataNI dataset suggestions

A record of Suggest A Dataset submissions and their referral to Public Sector bodies to consider publication. Dataset suggestions are submitted by users of OpenDataNI as a means to enquire about publication of data of interest. When referred to data-holding public sector bodies for consideration, those data-holders are required to respond within 10 working days with details of whether or not the dataset can be published – if the data can be published, their response shall indicate the timeframe within which they aim to do so; if unable to publish, the response must detail the reasons for this, with the only acceptable criteria being those outlined in the ‘Open Data Strategy for Northern Ireland 2015-18’).

Data is collected / recorded directly by Open Data team in the course of managing the Suggest A Dataset process.

Departments detailed in the data are those as they are constituted since NICS departments were re-organised with effect from 9th May 2016. Previously described Departments are no longer referenced, and as a result, it should be noted that the layout of this dataset is slightly different from data posted prior to June 2016.

From the update of 31 May 2017 onwards, dataset suggestions which have been referred to Councils are grouped as members of 'Local Government' rather than as sponsored bodies of the Department for Communities.

Also from the update of 31 May 2017 onwards, the frequency of update for this dataset has been changed from Quarterly to Monthly.
