Data Dictionary
The formats below each provide the same data and coding. Select the file which works best for your needs.
Please note that although we will try to maintain compatibility, the data structure in these files may change from time to time as we make enhancements to this site.
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.
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.
