Open Data. Open Policy.
[From the blog “A Great Day for Open Policy Analysis” by Fernando Hoces de la Guardia (BITSS Postdoc) posted at http://www.bitss.org]
“Earlier this year, I headed over to the CBO [U.S. Congressional Budget Office] to share my efforts to “reverse engineer” one of their debated reports, on the projected effects of a minimum wage increase. I recreated the CBO analysis in a fully transparent and reproducible format, using tools that are now common in the open science community.”
“Analysts at the agency seemed very receptive to the idea of OPA [Open Policy Analysis]… So you can imagine how excited I was to see the following tweet from CBO yesterday.”
