Open Data Barometer :2015 Global Report

The Open Data Barometer aims to uncover the true prevalence and impact of open data initiatives around the world. It analyses global trends, and provides comparative data on countries and regions via an in-depth methodology combining contextual data, technical assessments and secondary indicators to explore multiple dimensions of open data readiness, implementation and impact.
This is the second edition of the Open Data Barometer, completing a two-year pilot of the Barometer methodology and providing data for comparative research. This report is just one expression of the Barometer, for which full data is also available, supporting secondary research into the progression of open data policies and practices across the world.
The Open Data Barometer forms part of the World Wide Web Foundation’s work on common assessment methods for open data.
To create a global ranking, the World Wide Web Foundation aggregated the sub-indexes of the Open Data Barometer. Comparing scores and ranks in the second edition with those in the first can help to identify countries making progress, and those where progress has stalled.
As this year’s Barometer covers 86 countries (compared with the 77 countries covered in 2013), a change in rank position may result both from new countries entering the assessment above or below the score of a previously included country, as well as from substantial changes to that country’s score.
It presents the global rankings of the Open Data Barometer, including the overall Barometer score, as well as comparisons between the first and second editions of the Barometer. You can sort and filter linked table, and group by various facets, including country clusters, region and income level. Scaled country scores are rounded to the nearest whole number before ranks are assigned, meaning a number of countries receive tied rankings
