ProPublica, the independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest, announced today the launching of “the ProPublica Data Store.”
- Introducing the ProPublica Data Store, by Scott Klein and Ryann Grochowski Jones, ProPublica (Feb. 26, 2014).
- The ProPublica Data Store.
The store includes links to open government data and links to raw, as-is datasets ProPublica has obtained from government sources. Data that ProPublica has assembled by scraping and assembling material from web sites and out of Acrobat documents and has cleaned or merged from different sources in a way that’s never been done before, are available for purchase. All these datasets are from a growing collection of the data ProPublica has used in its reporting.
For datasets that are the result of significant expenditures of ProPublica’s time and effort, they charge a reasonable one-time fee: In most cases, it’s $200 for journalists and $2,000 for academic researchers.
