Welcome to Birmingham City Council's Data Factory. This is the place where organisations in the West Midlands Combined Authority can publish their open data.

This site is administered by Digital Birmingham, Birmingham City Council and we aim to publish a range of data that you can download and reuse, under the terms of the Open Government Licence for public sector information (version 2.0).

Open Data is as much part of the economic agenda as it is of being transparent about an organisations business. We believe that Open Data can generate many benefits such as:

  • Giving you direct access to data to build your own opinion
  • Allows datasets to be combined to create new insights
  • Enables sharing of data
  • Allows application developers to use real data



Text content and data files on this website are published under the terms of the Open Government Licence for public sector information, version 2. You are encouraged to use and re-use the information that is available under this licence freely and flexibly, with only a few conditions. Please read the Open Government Licence for the full details. However where data is derived from a licence and therefore its reuse is limited, this will be explicitly stated alongside the dataset.


Whilst every care has been taken in the compilation of the information on data.birmingham.gov.uk, Birmingham City Council will not be held responsible for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused as a result of inaccuracy within these pages. The Council does not endorse any external linked sites and is not responsible for their content.
