I would like to thank all of you, the wonderful Open Data Index Community and helping and shaping this product. We learnt so much from you feedback and we have so much to learn as well going forward! I am looking forward to your feedback and see how we progress even more. Without you this Index would not be as good as it is now.

Thank you also to Paul Walsh for the code, @sam for the design and to Katelyn Rogers, and neal bastek for content and our awesome coordinators -Paula, @YasGarcia, @brucejam, @Nany @titinto, @codrina, @irispalma, @oluseun , Joachim and Matthew!

Nice work on this project everybody!

I spotted a minor glitch. On this page http://index.okfn.org/place/ if you click on a completely green box then in the list of 9 properties, it says “Data does not exist”, even though it does. See the bottom of this image:

Dear Mor,

Is there any reason why Western Balkans countries are not covered in
this year’s edition of the index? Those countries were covered last year
and I added new datasets and updated old datasets for Serbia this year.

Regards,
Stevan Gostojić

Thanks to @Mor and Katelyn Rogers for the wonderful opportunity. It was truly an eye opening experience.

Update: in result from this Global Open Data Index 2015 survey on Malaysia, myself with the help of Sinar Project team will take several steps further in investigating accountability and transparency of the Malaysian government through a project Open Spending Data in Constrained Environment using tools such as open spending and social audit. We choose public housing in the Selangor state as a case study to capture data (government budgets and spending) at multiple levels while tying with community development and rights­ based issues such as gender­ based violence, vandalism, crime, urban poverty, healthcare, accessibility, security and safety.

Hi Stevan!

We needed all datasets to be submitted, even if they didn’t had updates. In the case of Serbia, only 5 datasets were updated, and therefore we couldn’t include it. We also didn’t get submissions to other Western Balkans countries as well. Sorry for this!
