Crowdsourcing subjective perceptions of neighbourhood disorder: interpreting bias in Open Data

Crowdsourced, open data is often seen as inherently problematic for researchers, primarily because of the inevitable subjective biases that occur when contributors are self-selected.

Réka uses data from mySociety’s street fault reporting service FixMyStreet to reframe those biases as a useful route into understanding people’s subjective experiences with their environments.
