This paper tries to find characteristics of municipalities’ open data policy through quantitative content analysis on open data related context in municipalities’ general plan. Specifically, first, for the municipalities that are registered in DATA.GO.JP and have reference to open data in their general plan, we confirm their descriptions about open data. Second, frequently mentioned terms were extracted by morphological analysis on these descriptions. Then we carry out principal component analysis on these terms and extract principal components. Finally, we point out characteristics of some municipalities’ open data policy based on the result.
