Event history

This table shows the technical details of the internal events that happened to this request on WhatDoTheyKnow. This could be used to generate information about the speed with which authorities respond to requests, the number of requests which require a postal response and much more.

Caveat emptor! To use this data in an honourable way, you will need a good internal knowledge of user behaviour on WhatDoTheyKnow. How, why and by whom requests are categorised is not straightforward, and there will be user error and ambiguity. You will also need to understand FOI law, and the way authorities use it. Plus you'll need to be an elite statistician. Please contact us with questions.
