Data are generated wherever digital technologies are deployed namely, in almost every part of modern life. Using these data can empower individuals, drive innovation, enable new digital products and improve policy making and public service delivery. But as data become more widely used across sectors and applications, the potential for misuse and harm also grows. To advance data governance for growth and well-being, this report advocates a holistic and coherent approach to data governance, domestically and across borders. It examines how data have emerged as a strategic asset, with the ability to transform lives and confer economic advantage. It explains how the unique characteristics of data can pose complex trade-offs and challenge policies that pre-date the data-driven era. This report provides new insights, evidence and analysis and outlines considerations for better data governance policies in the digital age.



Les données et leur circulation, y compris par-delà les frontières, sous-tendent l’activité économique et le bien-être dans les économies et les sociétés numériques à l’échelle mondiale. Ce rapport présente des idées, des données et des messages politiques issus de la troisième phase du projet Going Digital de l'OCDE, consacrée à la gouvernance des données au service de la croissance et du bien-être.
