To survey the availability of public data on COVID-19 on provincial websites
To monitor how each province updates its COVID-19 dataset via its website
To gain an understanding of each province’s toolkit (such as tools and technology) that is utilised to run the website and manage its COVID-19 datasets
The URLs identified as the official provincial level COVID-19 websites are based on official government references. PLJ’s team periodically updates its internal list of references based on information from reliable secondary sources.
“Data accessibility” is operationalised as the availability of data in a format that is easily extractable; data is stored in a database that is publicly accessible; or data is processed using technology that would allow simple extraction and data sharing with other parties.
Following initial analysis of the provincial websites, three categories were established to cluster the various trends observed. Denoted by colours, these include red (indicating an error or information retrieval failure); blue (indicating there are no updates, but the system continues to function); and orange (indicating there are possibly changes in the website’s structure or technology).
These three categories are based on several factors, as explained in the tooltips.
