The WikiRate Project

Wikirate sources data from public documents, and each data point must be linked to a source. Data is aggregated in thee ways: API integration, scraping from public databases and importing, and through individual or collective research. Partners for research and data sharing include volunteers and students who conduct research for a class assignment, companies and investors interested in adding data or running research projects, and non-profits and advocacy organizations with similar interests. There is a mechanism for double-checking the work others have researched and adding to WikiRate, and there are places for contextual information alongside each data point where work can be contested, discussed, and improved.
