From the standpoint of researchers, one of the things that the Taskforce should strongly support is more data. A few examples are below.
- State and territory governments should release geocoded crime statistics of all crime reports. See for example this website created by the New York Times: http://projects.nytimes.com/crime/homicides/map
- FaHCSIA should release all data (including prices and quality ratings) from its annual Child Care Census.
- The Taskforce should encourage projects such as the digitisation of MP interest registers by http://www.openaustralia.org/.
