This module contains data on companies and persons who ultimately own and control them. It was co-developed in partnership with Open Ownership.
Company information data can be used to foster trustworthy business environments, trade and investigations and enforcement related to anti-corruption and anti-money laundering activities. This module addresses two key questions: Which countries have policies and practices in place for the centralized collection and publication of corporate registration and beneficial ownership information? How is corporate ownership and beneficial ownership data being used? This module is designed to help fill a gap in the understanding of how company information data is being put to use around the world and will provide material for future case studies by organizations working on corporate ownership transparency.
The methodology and data collection processes of this first pilot edition of the Global Data Barometer will be assessed and reviewed for the next edition.
Data analysis does not necessarily represent the views, positions or opinions of the individual partner organizations, and any errors or omissions are the sole responsibility of the Global Data Barometer project.
