Data requests

A "data request" is a request for government to publish a dataset that is not yet published on data.gov.uk.

  • For requests and questions about a dataset already on data.gov.uk, you can contact the publisher directly if they’ve provided their contact details. You’ll see an envelope icon on the dataset page containing these details.
  • Only central government and its agencies are available in these requests. For other organisations, contact them directly and consider making an FOI request
  • Your personal data should not be requested with this method - contact the relevant organisation directly
  • Each request will be directed to the relevant department by the Cabinet Office team.

Make a request using this form, picking the category "Data request". 

The list of previous requests below isn't up to date, for technical reasons. We're improving the process for making requests, and as part of this we won't be publishing past requests in the coming months.
