Dawn of Asset Declarations

Every 31st January from midnight to dawn we run a data crowdsourcing event - we complete a task the Parliament should do: create an open and searchable database of the asset declarations of MPs.

Summary

On 31 January midnight the Hungarian Parliament publishes the asset declarations of MP-s on its website. These are mostly handwritten PDF documents that are definitely not satisfactory for comparison and monitoring.

Our aim is to create an easily manageable database that collects and compares information throughout the years. For this reason on 31 January night in some hours’ time with the help of our colleagues, friends and volunteers we turn the freshly published PDFs into a database. In cooperation with TransparenCEE and the Engine Room we have developed a program for microtask the work.

Download the unverified 2017 data from this link or browse the 2015-2016 cleaned dataset here. You can also check vagyonkereso.hu for further information.

Thanks for all volunteers joining our event!
