About the US States Data


The following are links to the open data collections of the United States of America (USA) state governments and some of their corresponding cities. As of 2011, there is a world-wide trend to put high quality governmental data to promote clear and accountable government practices, so hopefully further collections will be listed as the trend spreads.

If there are new sources of online government data, please feel free to register for an account and contribute your links. Kudos for you if you do so!
