RegData Australia

RegData Australia uses the RegData framework to create a dataset from the regulatory code and the acts of parliament of Australia. This dataset includes statistics such as the number of individual restrictions in a given regulation or act, the total words in the document, its title, and the year enacted or codified.

A short history of the RegData project can be foundĀ here.
