Oh, 311. How we love you. Not only do you prodvide easy access to city information, and an even easier way to bitch about city services, but now you provide us with statistical porn each month!

Under a new city law ("Local Law 47") the Department of Information Technology and Communications is now required to release monthly reports of data collected on calls made to 311. And what a boatload of information there is to release! Don't believe us? Go check the Local Law 47 website yourself.

So what was bugging New Yorkers in May? Well rodents brought in the most calls, but the water system didn't do so bad either:

New Yorkers made 9,956 calls about the water system, including their water bills, 7,973 calls about sewer problems and 4,414 calls about noise last month, according to a breakdown of the top categories.Other callers reported strange odors and other kinds of air pollution (1,524 calls), industrial waste (619 calls) and hazardous materials (263 calls).
