data portals

This new PARIS21 and Open Data Watch report is a first account of the state of data portals in national statistical offices.

Data portals form a critical link between producers and users of data; and they facilitate the use of data in evidence-based decision making. National statistical offices, supported by their international partners, have embraced data portals as a way to disseminate official data.

However, data portals need to be designed and implemented in a sustainable manner to be beneficial to end users. Currently, there is a lack of common principles and guidelines as to how these data portals should be set up and managed to guide institutions.

This report proposes a holistic method to evaluate data portals and proposes recommendations to improve their use and function.
