The Global Data Barometer assesses the state of data in 109 countries. Among other tools, an expert survey covered the period May 2019 – May 2021 and provided evidence on the governance, capability, availability, and use of data across a variety of sectors. The Barometer breaks down the concept of data for the public good into various components and sub-components, each assessed separately. Results are then aggregated into an overall score. You can explore that evidence below.
The Global Data Barometer is a global index study accomplished through an expert survey that is collaboratively designed. We draw on more than 100 country-level researchers. These researchers, drawing on local sources, online resources, and in-depth dataset assessments, provide evidence on the governance, capability, availability, and use of data for public good across a variety of sectors, providing justifications and supporting evidence for their answers.
