Explaining open data research into charity funding

New on NCVO’s web pages is ‘Exploring open data on charity funding‘. Two researchers give an overview of their work in the ‘Civil Society Data Partnership’ project, which is using open data to answer key questions about the voluntary sector.

The project isn’t just about answering research questions, we’re also in the business of “data resource construction”. This involves more than just bringing open data together, we’re also describing the process, the pitfalls, and hoping to produce guides for others who use the same data.
