The EU hands out more than €50 bn of public funds to the agricultural sector every year. The data on subsidies are publicly available via the EU member states, according to EU law. However, the information is often difficult to access, analyze and compare across borders. The Farmsubsidy.org website contains fresh and searchable data on farm subsidies, obtained from national government agencies. In this session, you will learn:
- how to analyze 16 million recipients of farm subsidies;
- how to crossmatch with other data to find story leaks;
- how to classify types of recipients (person/company/etc.) via trained machine learning models.
