Data Dictionary PDF
A CSV (comma-separated values) file can be easily read by most spreadsheet software. Some data fields can contain multiple values (refer to the data dictionary to identify which ones), which can make analysis a little more challenging. These values are stored as comma-separated numbers enclosed in quotation marks. CSV
A JSON (javascript object notation) file is generally more suitable for data engineers or software programmers, but has better support for multiple values in a data field. Empty/null values are not included. JSON

Version 2 Files

Version 2 files provide the full history of responses for each country/territory.

A JSON (javascript object notation) file is generally more suitable for data engineers or software programmers, but has better support for multiple values in a data field. Empty/null values are not included. This JSON file contains an object with two keys, both arrays. The countries array contains a list of countries / territories; the responseRounds array contains a list of our survey rounds, including summary changes and links to matching survey documents. Nearly all countries array items contain a responsesPublic property, which holds an array of the survey responses for that country. JSON
