The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) assesses the coverage and openness of official statistics to help identify gaps, promote open data policies, improve access, and encourage dialogue between national statistical offices (NSOs) and data users. ODIN 2017 includes 180 countries, including most all OECD countries. Two-year comparisons are for all countries with two years of data between 2015-2017. Scores can be compared across topics and countries. Explore the results on the ODIN website or download the scores for further analysis.

Scoring Criteria

Data available on NSO websites are assessed on ten elements of coverage and openness. Coverage scores are based on the availability of key indicators and appropriate disaggregations over time and for geographic subdivisions. Openness scores are based on whether data can be downloaded in machine-readable and non-proprietary formats, are accompanied by metadata and download options exist such as bulk download and user-selection or APIs, and have an open terms of use. One point is received for fully satisfying the criteria for each element; one-half point for partially satisfying them; and zero if the criteria are not satisfied or data are entirely missing.

Data Categories

The 21 data categories are grouped into three major categories: social, economic, and environmental statistics. Social statistics include population, health, education, gender, crime and poverty. Economic statistics include national accounts, labor, price indexes, government finance, money and banking, trade, and balance of payments. Environmental statistics include land use, resource use, energy use, pollution, and the built environment. Each category is scored on the elements of coverage and openness described above.
