The World Wide Web Foundation released the results of the Open Data Barometer, a measurement that reached its fourth version in 2016. In this edition, 115 nations were measured, 23 more than the year immediately before and Colombia went from 28th place, with an overall result of 45.3, to the 24th position, with a result of 52.

The Open Data Barometer is an indicator that aims to measure the prevalence and impact of open data initiatives around the world. It is led by the World Wide Web Foundation, in a collaborative work of the Open Data for Development (OD4D) network and with the support of the Omidyar Network.

This indicator analyzes global trends and provides comparative data on countries and regions using an in-depth methodology that combines contextual data, technical assessments and secondary indicators. In addition to the maturity of the initiatives of each country, the impact of data in business, politics and civil society is evaluated.

United Kingdom, Canada, France, the United States, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and the Netherlands lead the standings. In the region, Mexico (11), Uruguay (17), Brazil (18) and Colombia are the best located.
