.. attention:: **This documentation site is a work in progress.** The Social Economy Data Lab Specification is being developed as a draft data specification to describe social investment. For more information please `contact the Data Lab`__. .. __: http://socialeconomydatalab.org/contact
For open data to be really useful it has to follow a common data model – a specification – so that data from many publishers can be compared.
We are developing the Social Economy Data Lab Specification for this purpose. The Specification ensures that when your data is made available online, it can be easily transferable between different applications.
This is how we make sure that when you use the data, the results can be compared.
See the Getting Started page for more information.
