The Open Data Inventory (ODIN) is a new approach to assessing the coverage and accessibility of the datasets most pertinent to managing and monitoring the social, economic, and environmental development of a country. ODIN assesses data provided by national statistical offices (NSOs) through their principal websites for topical coverage and openness. The results are tabulated to allow comparisons across different datasets within a country and between countries. ODIN’s unique methodology has so far been applied to over 125 countries. The ODIN annual report covers this year’s highlights. Full details and results are accessible through the interactive ODIN online system.
