Mexico has developed an ambitious national open data policy to create value from the use and re-use of government data by the public, private and social sectors. Open government data (OGD) has the potential to spur the digital economy, as well as contribute to more efficient public service delivery and greater public engagement. Mexico has demonstrated its commitment to OGD through its close involvement in international open data initiatives. However, it faces challenges in effectively implementing OGD domestically in a way that makes a greater impact on the economy and society. This would require, notably, institutionalizing open data, understanding the demand for government data, reaching out to potential users and working more closely with local governments. To fully realise the potential of open data, it is crucial that public bodies understand the benefits, are fully behind the project and actively participate in its implementation. This report provides an analysis of Mexico’s policies as well as recommendations for achieving its national objectives and making the most of OGD.



Assessment and recommendations

The Open Government Data Review of Mexico was undertaken by the OECD to analyse the achievements, opportunities and challenges of open government data in the Mexican context. At request of the Mexican government, this Review includes a specific chapter on open government, which is based on the analytical framework of the OECD Open Government Reviews. The analysis on open data policies and initiatives is based on the OECD methodology laid out in the working paper "Open government data: Towards empirical analysis of open government data initiatives". OECD country-specific reviews recommend proposals for action that help countries to improve their open government data (OGD) efforts in order to achieve greater impact on their economies, societies and public sectors.
