Canada Council makes improved detailed statistical data about grants available

Anyone interested in Canada Council data, particularly about literary and cultural magazine publishing and CC grant recipients, will likely be very pleased about Open Data. There has always been statistical information available about grants, of course, but this new site will likely make it easier to find and use.
"We can now offer the public detailed statistical data regarding our grant recipients in formatted Excel documents and in a machine readable format (.csv)," the council said on its blog. "This means the data can be sorted by programs, regions (e.g. community and federal riding) and can also be added to other databases on arts and culture activities and organizations in Canada. This is exciting news for researchers, arts organizations, funders and many others: this information will help them to have a better picture of a specific reality, activity or practice. This is also exciting news for us: we are better able to respond to your demand for funding data....
"Our downloadable tables Stats and Stories align with international open data standards and include information on each grant recipient, including geography, program, discipline and equity groups for organizations. In addition to grant figures, you can find information on Canada Council Art Bank purchases, Canadian Commission for UNESCO and Special Funds (endowed prizes, Killam Research Fellowships and Prizes and the Japan-Canada Fund). The data, success stories and arts data go hand in hand to illustrate the breadth of Canada Council’s funding activities across Canada and abroad."
