Help Us Get It Right
All the numbers above are based on official records. But, records are not always right. Sometimes errors slip into the official record, both by mistake and deliberate distortion. Data shapes government policy and company actions, so 'dirty data' can harm our communities. The new age of 'open data' and transparent governance means that us ordinary citizens can now help ensure that errors are corrected. So, if you have evidence that any of the above numbers are wrong, please help us fix them.
You can find the dataset that we used here.
Build Your Own Projects
Want to use the raw data to check the facts, or build your own projects? Where My Money Dey? is built with data that we pulled together from various government and corporate sources. Some of this data had to be 'liberated' from paper documents which we had to digitise, or from static PDFs which we had to turn into machine readable data. Everything has been uploaded onto the openAFRICA.org repository. You're welcome to re-use all of this information, in any way you please and without any cost, as long as you acknowledge where you got the data from.
