Global Data Barometer- Launch of results of the first edition
The Global Data Barometer is a collaborative project that aims to measure the state of data in relation to urgent societal issues. It is a multi-dimensional index that assesses countries around the world on a set of robust comparative metrics focused on data for public good. It is comprised of components and subcomponents, which are in turn built from composite indicators that combine primary and secondary data.
The Barometer draws on more than 100 country-level researchers. These researchers, drawing on local sources, online resources, and in-depth dataset assessments, provide evidence on the governance, capability, availability, and use of data for public good across a variety of sectors, providing justifications and supporting evidence for their answers. The evidence will furnish a macro view of national policy and practice around data for the public good to provide actionable insights.
To share all the work and results that we have developed over this period we will host a virtual event to discuss the main findings and contributions for a variety of stakeholders and the whole data community.
This event will also showcase the organizations that in a variety of formats have supported this endeavor.
