Regional Snapshots | Open Data Barometer – Fourth Edition

July 26, 2017

As part of our ongoing analysis of the Open Data Barometer fourth edition results, we have published a series of snapshots taking a closer look at regional open data trends.

The Barometer showed substantial variation in open data among regions, and these snapshots offer a view of how well countries are progressing on open data within regions. The barometer ranks governments by open data readiness, implementation and impact.
