Open Data Barometer – 2013 Global Report published

Tim Berners-Lee has unveiled the latest survey of the open data performance of 77 countries.

Countries in the survey are ranked according to the openness of government data and are scored on 'readiness', 'implementation' and 'impact'.

European countries are performing well, taking six of the top ten places:

Top 10 countries

  • UK
  • USA
  • Sweden
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Denmark
  • Australia
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • France

The performance of the top five countries is explored in more detail in the report.

The report acknowledges that great progress has been made but that the availability of truly open data remains low and that there is still a long way to go. Despite advances made in several countries, no country can as yet claim to be 'open by default'.

The Report is available here.
