The Open Data Index was developed in 2013 to provide a global reference for the state of open data release by national governments. It provides an independent peer-reviewed assessment of openness in a range of key areas, reflecting the realities of public information release and practice in over 60 countries. 80 datasets are assessed, covering ten areas including transport, government budgets and spending, election results, company registers, national maps and statistics, legislation, postcodes and pollutant emissions.
