NYC Open Data - 2023 Progress Report

An aerial view of New York City, showing parts of all five boroughs

New York City runs on the data generated by its agencies. Nearly every interaction New Yorkers have with these agencies produces data – from achieving a milestone like opening a business or becoming a homeowner, to everyday activities like hailing a taxi or having a picnic. Every public service that the City provides for New Yorkers generates data, as well - every tree planted, restaurant inspected, and street paved is a new row in a dataset.

City agencies use this data to understand how to better serve New York City. In turn, New Yorkers can use it to understand how their government works for them. This cycle of information exchange is fueled by the belief that access to data promotes transparency and grants new opportunities to all who use it. That belief is backed by New York City’s Open Data Law first passed in 2012, and later amended to further bolster the strength of this commitment.

This report shines a light on all the efforts that keep Open Data running, brings awareness to all about the latest information available form the city, and provides a glimpse into the upcoming changes and additions to our platform.
