image of Open Government Data Report

This report provides an overview of the state of open data policies across OECD member and partner countries, based on data collected through the OECD Open Government Data survey (2013, 2014, 2016/17), country reviews and comparative analysis. The report analyses open data policies using an analytical framework that is in line with the OECD OUR data Index and the International Open Data Charter. It assesses governments’ efforts to enhance the availability, accessibility and re-use of open government data. It makes the case that beyond countries’ commitment to open up good quality government data, the creation of public value requires engaging user communities from the entire ecosystem, such as journalists, civil society organisations, entrepreneurs, major tech private companies and academia. The report also underlines how open data policies are elements of broader digital transformations, and how public sector data policies require interaction with other public sector agendas such as open government, innovation, employment, integrity, public budgeting, sustainable development, urban mobility and transport. It stresses the relevance of measuring open data impacts in order to support the business case for open government data.

Apps to check the weather, the best route to a destination or to compare real estate values, all rely on the availability of open data. These examples prove how the release of government data as open data can improve the everyday lives of citizens. We all use, and often depend on, these apps to organise our days and make personal decisions. Similarly, businesses are finding new ways to innovate thanks to government data released as open data. These opportunities help demonstrate the benefits of open government data, and contribute to citizens’ trust in government to modernise in order to meet the needs of digitally transformed economies.
