Data provided from over 46,000 registered charities
Transparency is becoming more apparent in the charity sector with data being provided from over 46,000 registered charities.
Data from more than 46,000 registered charities’ 2015 Annual Information Statements, including financial data, has been uploaded to data.gov.au as part of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission’s (ACNC) commitment to open data.
“From the very early days of the ACNC taskforce, we have had a strong commitment to open data. We believe that it is important that the ACNC practices what it preaches,” said Acting Commissioner David Locke.
“The ACNC makes comprehensive data sets available to the public on data.gov.au as part of our committed to open data and transparency.”
Journalists, academics, the general public, and charities themselves, now have access to the latest ACNC reporting data.
This dataset provides a record of the 2015 Annual Information Statements submitted by charities, that is, the information submitted for a charity’s 2015 reporting year. For most charities that will be for the financial year 1 July 2014 – 30 June 2015.
The 2015 AIS dataset on data.gov.au is the ACNC’s largest upload, and allows users to download, compare, filter and sort by different variables.
The charity commissioner will update this dataset weekly, as more Annual Information Statements are received.
The main purpose of the site is to encourage public access to and reuse of government data by providing it in useful formats and under open licences.
