Open Data Policy impact in Mexico
Open Data Policy
Since 2013, the generation, release and use of actionable and timely data has been one of the most important levers and enablers of the National Development Objectives of Mexico. As the cornerstone of this objective, the country developed an ambitious Open Data Policy to promote transparency, innovation and citizen participation through publication of data generated and managed by federal agencies and ministries, in formats that facilitate their access, understanding, use and distribution by any person. Crucial to this strategy, is a differentiator that makes the Mexican Open Data Policy from others in the world: the active work to match data supply and demand, the implementation of pilot projects to test assumptions, and the institutionalization of successful initiatives throughout government in other sectors of society. In close to three years since the Open Data policy was officially established, this has had a measurable impact in all global Open Data Rankings, specially the OECD’s OUR Data Index 2017, in which Mexico ranks as No.2 in terms of impact and reuse.
