Archived files

Our cleaned-up version of each of the 80 CAL-ACCESS database tables released by state officials, grouped by type.


The raw data provided by the state contains errors in how some values are escaped, quoted and delimited. The result is a small number of records lost when we prepare files for download.

However, those 1,413 lost records represent only 0.00325% of the source data.

Error logs are included in the full archive download above. You can also download individual logs below.
