Citywide Data Sharing

Citywide Data Sharing

The Open Data Portal provides the public with access to over 2,000 data sets about City agency operations. However, agencies often also require access to the data of other agencies that is not suited for publication due to the privacy or sensitivity of the data. MODA has a mandate in the City Charter to facilitate data sharing between city agencies by contributing to technology system requirements, and is continuing to pursue improvements to the City's data sharing platforms and tools.

If you are a City agency, and would like more information on available City data sharing platforms and tools, please email NYC Analytics.   


Data Resources Available to City Employees

The table below lists helpful datasets that are available for use by City employees. If you are a City employee interested in getting access to one of these datasets, send an email to the address listed in the Contact field for that dataset. Requirements for accessing the data and restrictions for how it can be used may vary.

For more publicly available datasets that may be of use, visit NYC Open Data.
