ODIN Open Data Inventory Annual Report 2020 – 2021

The goal of Open Data Watch (ODW) is to help countries build better and more resilient national statistical systems. Such systems must focus on users’ needs. Users range from policy decision makers to researchers, students, journalists, and the public at large. At the heart of user-centered and well governed statistical systems are open data practices that link data production to user service. But what is a practical path to achieve open data and how do countries monitor their progress? This is what the Open Data Inventory (ODIN) methodology, assessments, technical engagements, and website and tools provide. After five rounds of ODIN assessments, the ODIN 2020/21 assessment offers a wealth of knowledge. This report on the 2020/21 results offers a selection of findings, but there is much more to be explored from the data available. The new ODIN website provides an easier and faster way to access data. The refreshed look and feel of the Country Profiles are a good sources of information. But perhaps the most important achievement has been our extensive engagements with countries. We have learned a lot from our collaborations with countries and by participating in the UN Statistical Commission’s Open Data Working Group. All together, we feel we now have a strong community supporting open data for official statistics. Our thanks and appreciation go to all partners for working with us and to our donors for trusting in us and supporting our operations. We look forward to continuing our work together to improve open data in all countries.
