I am trying to find curated data on regions and states. For example, for Australia, I am trying to find government expenditure by state. The same with Canada (by region), and the USA.

Is there any curated data on this?

  • $\begingroup$ Start by finding the entity of the region using Interpreter["AdministrativeDivision"]["region name"]. Then you can list categories of curated data using regionEntity["Properties"]. Finding out which of the entities actually work for your region is a process of trial and error. A property will return Missing if it doesn't exist for the given entity. $\endgroup$ – C. E.
