Final reviewer: The data is not up-to-date (all datasets appear to cover either 2010 or 2011). It is not available in bulk as each file needs to be downloaded individually. Lastly, although the title of the page reads 'Open Data', the Terms of Use of the website as well as the mention at the bottom indicate full copyright by the government: the data is therefore not considered openly licensed.
