Governance indicators are especially useful for monitoring and benchmarking governments' progress in their public sector reforms. Each indicator in the publication is presented in a user-friendly format, consisting of graphs and/or charts illustrating variations across countries and over time, brief descriptive analyses highlighting the major findings of the data, and a methodological section on the definition of the indicator and any limitations in data comparability.

Open government data: Enabling policy maturity and sustainability

Governments across the globe have a great opportunity to generate public value by enabling the publication, sharing of and access to public sector data. Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries are highly committed to the open data agenda. The LAC region has the largest number of countries (11 in total) adopting the International Open Data Charter. In addition, 81% of LAC countries already have an appropriate medium-term strategy on open government data (OGD), compared to 84% of OECD countries, and 75% have a national OGD action plan that includes implementation of open data portals and the release of data.
