In this "Open Data and Data Journalism" blog post will look more closely at educational issues. The school year is about to begin and we will explore how popular private schools are. Here we look at the Estonian five year trend and also zoom in at the last school year.

Goals of opening up data

  • to stimulate economy
  • to increase transparency
  • to provide access to information
  • to decrease the number of information requests and, consequently, also reduce the workload of public sector workers
  • to facilitate creation and management of open services for private and community sectors
  • to encourage migration to future technologies such as Linked Data, Big Data and Internet of Things
