HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced on Monday the launch of a new website where you can read data about the state government.

The site is called OpenDataPA. Wolf said the site was created to promote more transparency in state government.

The site includes information on job creation, school performance, and infrastructure projects.

“Since day one of my administration, I have been committed to making state government more open and transparent,” Governor Wolf said. “One of our most valuable and underutilized resources in state government is data. Our goal is to make data available in order to engage citizens, create economic opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs, and develop innovative policy solutions that improve program delivery and streamline operations.”

Governor Wolf signed an executive order to release agency data to the public on April 19.

The governor’s office said the hope is that the available data can be used to engage citizens, measure government performance, and create economic opportunities.
