Wake County Open Data

Wake County supports an open and transparent government that provides increased access to public data.  Our goal is to provide a single portal catalog to access various Wake County Government data sets in standard formats to promote efficiency and effectiveness. As a starting point to reach our open data goal, you will find some of the frequently used data sets listed below already available on our website. In the future, we will work to provide more downloadable datasets with standard schemes. Public participation is important to us and your feedback will help us to publish data in formats that is usable and accessible.
