Open Data Inventory (ODIN)

The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) assesses the coverage and openness of official statistics to identify gaps, promote open data policies, improve access, and encourage dialogue between national statistical offices (NSOs) and data users.

ODIN's data availability score is being considered as a component of SDG Indictor 17.18.1. Because we are committed to rigorous assessment and partnership with countries, Open Data Watch will conduct a special review of ODIN in preparation for submitting data to the United Nations Statistics Division. During this time, the ODIN 2022/23 data and report will be offline until July 2023.

Please contact with any questions or comments.

Data and Methodology

The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) measures how complete a country’s statistical offerings are and whether their data meet international standards of openness. Data assessed in ODIN must be official country data that are published on the national statistics office’s (NSO) website or any other official country website that is linked from the NSO website.

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 whether download options exist such as bulk download and user-selection or APIs, and have an open terms of use or data license.

For more information on methods see ODIN 2022/23 Methodology Guide.
