Thanks Paola,

It is not a pleasant political day in Washington DC, but Open Data has had a very good week world-wide :-)

You mentioned the UN Statistics Div., in the US the Census Bureau is the equivalent.  Sometime this week they posted the full summary (SF3) for the 1990 and 2000 Census.



You can access the sets with JSONP.  I'd rather not offer up my Census Key for general use, but for handling JSONP, you can get tips from the pages here: http://www.rustprivacy.org/2013/egov/

Dear List Members
Following on from the query/suggesion from Peter Krantz:-
I have worked with the UN Statistics Division to produce a multilingual SKOS/RDF version of the United Nations “Classification of Functions of Government” [COFOG] [1]   The files are available as downloads from the UN site [2]
COFOG has the advantage that at some level all countries report using this classification, and it also is sufficiently broad to make classification easier than with finer grained schemes.
Kind regards
Peter Winstanley
