Overview

We found many government datasets mention named entities by name, code (via separate dictionary), acronym. In fact, these entities can be used to get government data interlinked. We therefore investigate using semantic wiki to build a code book for these entities. Our work started with US states and US government agencies. We will extend our work to other named entities in future work.
