Global Data Barometer Country Report - India

This Global Data Barometer Country profile for India provides a quick overview of the strengths and weaknesses with regards to data capabilities, governance, availability and impact, and in comparison with other countries in the region and globally.

Among the countries reviewed in South Asia, India scored the highest with strengths recorded in Governance and Capability. With a legal framework for data protection and data management, as well as widespread evidence of civil servants training and open data initiatives even at the sub-national level, India also showed evidence of availability for many datasets assessed. However, there may be lacking in terms of use and impact of the datasets, as well as strengthening the framework on data sharing across sectors.
