Abstract

Freedom of information (FOI) laws allow private citizens to request data from public authorities. It also requires these agencies to publish certain information in the public interest on a regular basis. To understand the underlying data that contributes to these public reports, one has to file a request. People also make requests for information that they suspect is not published.
