Request data that interests you

Did you know that Governments actually want to know what data is of value to you and most data portals have a mechanism which supports you to submit a data request!  It cant hurt to ask! Why not request data from all the portals (let them know you are doing this) so you can get some great comparable datasets.  To be fair you should allow at least 2 months before the comp to request data…so get requesting!
