Open Risk Data Provider List

The table below organizes available Open Risk Data providers.

Criteria for inclusion

The objective of the list is to identify as far as possible direct sources of open data sets. Yet there might be significant overlap among the various data repositories as various institutions share and republish open data.

At present the list does not attempt to evaluate the degree of "openness" of the various data sources.


The first entry per record is a general identifier of the data provider. The second entry is the general type of data provided. Large data repositories may include multiple types of data. The URL is a web link where actual data can be accessed, potentially requiring registration. Format/API is an indication how the data can be retrieved, keeping in mind that large repositories may be providing data in multiple formats / channels.
