Civic Issue Campaign Results

The Open Data team launched a campaign in order to help identify as well as prioritize the release of high-quality, in-demand datasets related to the City’s 5 priority civic issues:

Affordable Housing Poverty Reduction Climate Change Fiscal Responsibility Mobility Through the distribution of an online questionnaire, members of the public were asked to answer three questions that together will help gauge public interest around the City’s 5 priority areas in relation to open data: (1) What civic issues are you most interested in? (2) What data should be made available to address the civic issue(s)? (3) How might the data be used?

The Questionnaire was live between July 16th, 2019 and October 2nd 2019 and was shared publicly through the following channels: Twitter, LinkedIn, and the TransformTO and Open Data Update newsletters.

Together, the responses collected will help identify potential datasets for future release, as well as calculate their level of priority. More information around the Open Data Priority Framework is available online.

Limitations Personal identifying information was omitted. Only fully completed responses were included.

Field Value
Data complies with a community standard (RDA-R1.3-01D)
This indicator requires that data complies with community standards. (FAIR ID = RDA-R1.3-01D).
Yes
Data uses knowledge representation expressed in standardised format (RDA-I1-01D)
The indicator serves to determine that an appropriate standard is used to express knowledge, in particular the data model and format (FAIR ID = RDA-I1-01D).
Yes
Data uses machine-understandable knowledge representation (RDA-I1-02D)
This indicator focuses on the machine-understandability aspect of the data. This means that data should be readable and thus interoperable for machines without any requirements such as specific translators or mappings (FAIR ID = RDA-I1-02D).
Yes
Data uses FAIR-compliant vocabularies (RDA-I2-01D)
The indicator requires the controlled vocabulary used for the data to conform to the FAIR principles, and at least be documented and resolvable using globally unique and persistent identifiers. The documentation needs to be easily findable and accessible (FAIR ID = RDA-I2-01D).
Yes
Data includes references to other data (RDA-I3-01D )
This indicator is about the way data is connected to other data, for example linking to previous or related research data that provides additional context to the data (FAIR ID = RDA-I3-01D).
No
Data is accessible through an access protocol that supports authentication and authorisation (RDA-A1.2-01D)
The indicator requires that if the data or local environment indicates a degree of additional protection then the access protocol must support authentication and authorisation of people and/or machines? (FARI ID = RDA-A1.2-01D)
No
Data can be accessed manually (RDA-A1-02D)
Data can be accessed manually (i.e., with human intervention, FAIR ID = RDA-A1-02D).
Yes
Data identifier resolves to a digital object (RDA-A1-03D)
Data identifier resolves to a digital object (FAIR ID = RDA-A1-03D)
Yes
Data is accessible through a standardised protocol (RDA-A1-04D)
The indicator refers to automated interactions between machines to access digital objects (FAIR ID = RDA-A1-04D).
Yes
Data can be accessed automatically (RDA-A1-05D)
Data can be accessed automatically (i.e. by a computer program, FAIR ID = RDA-A1-05D)
Yes
Data is accessible through a free access protocol (RDA-A1.1-01D)
The indicator requires that the protocol can be used free of charge which facilitates unfettered access (FAIR ID = RDA-A1.1-01D).
Yes
