2019-20 Budget data now live


After fixing errors in the line-item CSV as published on the budget data is now live and searchable on my site.

There are often significant errors in this dataset which is likely a result of it being created after the Appropriation Bills are tabled on budget night. I think for legal reasons it can’t be created prior to that and no one seems to check whether there are errors in it or perhaps recognise what errors actually look like in the data (which I think is scraped from the PBS PDF’s).
