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.

The working paper explaining the RegData Australia dataset by McLaughlin, Potts, and Sherouse can be found here.

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