Open Data is data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone.
What makes this data “open” is that it isn’t limited by restrictions on access or usage. This type of data is delivered in a structured format, making it easier to use, sort and repurpose.
Two of the most frequently requested aggregate data files that are available for the public to access include:
These public reports have been developed to allow users to view the data in a variety of ways.
Some examples of how these data can be viewed include:
- by year
- by sex
- by Regional Health Authority
Some important points to note:
- The reports are de-identified and aggregated to remove any personal health information before they are available for public use; and
- Users do not need a username or password to access to eHealth Saskatchewan’s Public information.
