The Open Knowledge Index

The Open Knowledge Index has been designed to measure and track progress in opening up information, data and knowledge in a broader sense to the public. The Open Knowledge Index captures three dimensions of knowledge – the ability to access knowledge (capability), the availability of knowledge and data provision (legislation) and the capacity to use the data and feed it back into the open data eco-system (open society).

Currently, the sample consists of a cross-section of 38 countries in 2009-2010, comprising OECD and the BRIC countries. We plan to gradually increase the sample in the future.
