Request for Data

The Data Practices Act (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 13) presumes that all government data are public unless a state or federal law says the data is not public. Government data is a term that means all recorded information a government entity has, including paper, email, CD-ROMs, photographs, etc. To learn more about accessing government data, see the Data Practices Policies below:
