OGP Issues Database on Performance by 43 Countries

2 May 2014

The Open Government Partnership has issued a beta version of the data from the Independent Reporting Mechanism assessments of 43 countries.

“It is hoped that everyone interested in OGP will use the data to take a fresh look at countries of interest, see where the trends lie, and see if there are lessons to be learned,” according to a blog post by Joe Foti, the chief staffer for the IRM. The IRM has not released an analysis of the data.

One database concerns all 958 commitments or actions analyzed as part of the IRM process.

The second database shows how well each of the OGP participating governments participated in the OGP process as well as the existing institutional arrangements for OGP at the time of publication.  

A detailed Data Guide with explanations of variables, provenance, and potential can be found here.


Comments are welcome on the data or the accompanying Data Guide at irm@opengovpartnership.org.
