Coverage

The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) assesses coverage based on five coverage elements described below. Each category receives a coverage score based on the amount of data available in that category. Average scores across all categories are shown in the chart below.

In general, coverage scores are based on the availability of indicators and disaggregations published, how many observations are available over the last 10 years, and if national and subnational data exist.

Indicators Not Published

Indicators are considered not published when no qualifying and disaggregated data are found. Not all indicators are required for full credit in every category.

26%
Number of Categories That Score 0

Categories that score 0 do not publish the minimum amount of data to receive a score. For most categories, the minimum amount of data is one indicator. There are 22 categories.

2
Indicators Lacking Sex Disaggregation

Sex- disaggregated data are important to reflect the realities of men and women in various policy areas and narrow gender inequalities.

Coverage Element Scores, 2020

Click to see a description of each coverage element. Scoring criteria for each can be found in the Methodology Guide on the page that corresponds to the coverage element. Element scores are given for each category. The chart above shows average scores across all categories.

Indicators and Disaggregation
This coverage element measures how many indicators and disaggregations are published within a category. In each category, all other coverage elements cannot score higher than this element so that coverage scores are not inflated by only a few datasets.
Data Available the Last 5 Years
This coverage element measures how many of the last 5 years of data are available for indicators within each category.
Data Available the Last 10 Years
This coverage element measures how many of the last 10 years of data are available for indicators within each category.
First Administrative Level
This coverage element measures whether data are available at the first administrative level within each category. First administrative levels are defined by the ISO 3166-2 standard and adjusted for country practices. Not all categories or indicators are required to be published data at this level. (See exemptions here.)
Second Administrative Level
This coverage element measures whether data are available at the second administrative level within each category. Second administrative levels are not defined and any further division of first administrative levels are accepted. Not all categories or indicators are required to be published at this level. (See exemptions here.)

Openness

The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) assesses openness based on five coverage elements described below. Each category receives a coverage score based on the amount of data available in that category. Average scores across all categories are shown in the chart below.

In general, openness scores are based on the format and licensing of the datasets, the comprehensiveness of metadata, and what download options exist.

Data License/Terms of Use

The licensing or terms of use that govern the use and reuse of data assessed in ODIN are classified as Open, Some Restrictions, Not Open or Not Available (if no license is found). Below is licensing information for data from the national statistics office on their website and most prominent data portal, if applicable.

Openness Element Scores, 2020

Click to see description of each openness element. Scoring critieria for each can be found in the Methodology Guide on the page that corresponds to the openness element. Element scores are given for each category. The chart above shows average scores across all categories.

Machine Readability
This openness element measures whether data are made available in machine readable formats. Machine readable file formats allow users to easily process data using a computer. Common machine readable formats include XLS, XLSX, CSV, and JSON files.
Nonproprietary Format
This openness element measures whether data are made available in nonproprietary formats. Nonproprietary file formats are important because they allow users to access data without requiring the use of a costly, proprietary software that may prevent some users from accessing the data. Common nonproprietary formats include PDF, HTML, XLSX, DOCX, CSV, and JSON files.
Metadata Availability
This openness element measures whether metadata are available for the published indicators. Metadata must be located in or near the data file or on a designated metadata section of the website. ODIN looks for three aspects of metadata: (1) definition of indicator; (2) date of upload; and (3) Source agency.
Download Options
This openness element measures whether download options are available. ODIN looks for three download options: (1) bulk download (at the indicator level), (2) API, and (3) user-select download (custom downloads). Options 2 and 3 are interchangeable for scoring purposes.
Terms of Use or Data License
This openness element measures whether data are made available under an open license. Open licenses must allow the use, reuse, and sharing or adaption of data for commercial and noncommercial use without any obligation other than attribution, per the Open Definition. Licenses prohibiting commercial use or having two or more additional stipulations are classified as “Not Open”. Licenses with no more than one additional stipulation are classified as “Some Restrictions.” Licenses that do not explicitly state all allowed uses under the Open Definition and do not include restrictive language are also classified as “Some Restrictions.”

ODIN Indicators

The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) 2020 assesses data for 65 representative indicators in 22 data categories. The ODIN indicators are not meant to be a comprehensive list of all indicators produced by a country, but rather an indicative sample of the fundamental types of data produced by countries.

The table below shows a list of all ODIN indicators, whether qualifying data were found, and information about the coverage and openness criteria for each dataset. To qualify, a dataset must be published on the NSO website or an official government website linked from the NSO website. It must show national level data, have one of the required categorical disaggregations (if applicable), and present data from the last 10 years.

Not all indicators are required for full credit. More information about this can be found in our Methodology Guide.

Recommendations

Every country can improve their open data and ODIN scores can help identify gaps where improvements should be focused. The following recommendations may involve not only the national statistics office, but the entire national statistical system.

If you would like to schedule a meeting to learn more about how to implement these recommendations, Contact Us.

17 ODIN indicators were not published with any of the required disaggregation. ODIN indicators are only a representative sample of the types of data a country should publish and not all indicators below may be relevant to your country. Nonetheless, those that are should be published. Below is a table of the ODIN indicators where no disaggregated data could be found on the NSO website or any official national website that is linked from the NSO website. See the Methodology Guide for definitions of each indicator.

Missing ODIN Indicator Required Disaggregation
(2.1) Number of schools or classrooms School Stage, School Type
(2.3) Education expenditures School Stage, Expenditure Categories
(3.3) Competency exam results Sex, Age, School Stage
(4.3) Health expenditures Expenditure Categories
(6.3) Under-5 mortality rate Sex
(7.5) Prevalence of wasting Sex, Age
(8.1) Proportion of women who are victims of physical, sexual, or psychological violence Age, Disability Status, Relationship To Perpetrator
(9.1) Homicide rate Sex Of Victim, Age Of Victim, Sex Of Perpetrator, Age Of Perpetrator, Victim/Perpetrator Relationship
(9.2) Crime rate Crime Type, Sex Of Victim, Age Of Victim, Sex Of Perpetrator, Age Of Perpetrator, Victim/Perpetrator Relationship
(9.3) Data on prison population Age, Sex, Sentencing Status
(11.3) Gross domestic product (income approach) Income Components
(15.1) Money supply Money Aggregates
(18.1) Data on land use or land cover Crop Type, Environmental Zones, Irrigation Status
(19.4) Water consumption Sector
(20.2) Energy supply Energy Commodity
(21.1) Greenhouse gas emissions Gas Type
(21.2) Emissions of air or water pollutants Pollutant Type

3 ODIN indicators were not published with sex-disaggregation. Sex-disaggregated data are important to reflect the realities of men and women in various policy areas and narrow gender inequalities. Below is a table of the ODIN indicators where no sex-disaggregated data could be found on the NSO website or any official national website that is linked from the NSO website.

ODIN Indicator with no Sex-disaggregation Published
(5.1) Immunization rate
(7.3) Prevalence of obesity
(12.2) Employment distribution

15 ODIN indicators were available in datasets that were not made available for all years in a machine readable format. Machine-readable data are structured data in formats that can be read and processed by a computer. These include Extensible Markup Language (XML), JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), common-separated values (CSV), and Microsoft Excel’s Open XML Spreadsheet (XLSX). When data are made available in formats that are not machine-readable, users cannot easily access and modify the data, which severely restricts their use. Below is a table of the ODIN indicators for which data in a machine readable format could not be found. File formats with a (r) indicate that the file is machine readable. File formats with a (np) indicate that the file is nonproprietary.

5 ODIN indicators were available in datasets that were not made available for all years in a nonproprietary format. Nonproprietary formats allow users to access data without requiring the use of a costly, proprietary software that may prevent some users from accessing the data. By definition, proprietary formats restrict either the ability to use the information or the ability to share the information. The most common nonproprietary formats used by statistics offices are PDF, XLSX, and CSV. Below is a table of the ODIN indicators for which data in a nonproprietary format could not be found. File formats with a (r) indicate that the file is machine readable. File formats with a (np) indicate that the file is nonproprietary.

47 ODIN indicators were available in datasets that were not made available for all years with complete metadata. Many metadata standards can be used to meet ODIN criteria for complete metadata. Metadata must include the following three components: 1) Source agency of data, 2) Definition of indicator, and 3) Date that data was uploaded online. Datasets should be published with ample metadata to “aid both discoverability and usability of the data,” according to the Open Data Handbook. Various metadata standards exist that are often used for statistical data, including Dublin Core, Data Catalogue Vocabulary (DCAT), and RDF Data Cube Vocabulary. Below is a table of the ODIN indicators for which data with incomplete metadata was found.
