Strategy and Guidance
What are the new demands of data users both inside and outside government? What data management, dissemination, legal, institutional, technical and quality frameworks work best? What reforms are needed to integrate open data standards into national strategies for statistical development (NSDS)?
Data do not become open simply by labeling them “open.” National statistical systems in many developing countries need to undertake significant reforms in their NSDS. To guide and advise countries, Open Data Watch collects, synthesizes and shares practical information on successful data management and dissemination practices, as well as legal, institutional, technical, and quality assurance frameworks.
