Data Location



The businesses are broken down in a very useful way by "business type" (e.g. Professional, Entertainment, etc.).

It is unclear if all of these businesses are actually located in Culver City or not because many of the addresses list cities other than Culver City. I'm not sure if this means that the physical building or person doing business is outside of the city limits, the owner's residence is outside the city, or the business was incorporated outside of the city. In any case, this seems to be a common problem with other cities as well and simply needs clarification in the dataset description. Other than that, great dataset.

The dataset is updated monthly according to the City.
