image of The Path to Becoming a Data-Driven Public Sector

Twenty-first century governments must keep pace with the expectations of their citizens and deliver on the promise of the digital age. Data-driven approaches are particularly effective for meeting those expectations and rethinking the way governments and citizens interact. This report highlights the important role data can play in creating conditions that improve public services, increase the effectiveness of public spending and inform ethical and privacy considerations. It presents a data-driven public sector framework that can help countries or organisations assess the elements needed for using data to make better-informed decisions across public sectors.




Data driven public sector policies represent a paradigm shift for administrations with regard to the management and ethical use of data, resulting in the need for a comprehensive policy approach to create public value based on data assets. This chapter presents key findings and policy recommendations for public administrations to support the successful implementation of data driven public sector policies.
