Education data sets in the Global Open Data Index?

- June 25, 2015 in data, featured

The Open Data census systematically tracks the state of open data around the world and publishes them in the Global Open Data Index. For the last 3 years the GODI has looked at 10 data sets for each country: National Statistics; Government Budget; Election Results; Legislation; National Map; Pollutant Emissions; Company Register; Transport Timetables; Postcodes / Zipcodes; Government Spending.

The team are now keen to create a civil society audit of the data revolution and have launched the 2015 Global Open Data Index public consultation to find what themes and datasets civil society think should be included.

So should there be any education data sets in the GODI? Suggestions made so far include:

  • Name and locations of schools
  • Performance of schools
  • University course data
  • Digital literacy data

Are there any ideas missing? There are lots of education data sets listed in our Open Education Handbook.


You can add ideas and vote on current ideas on the 2015 Global Open Data Index public consultation WikiSurvey site. [Voting involves choosing between 2 ideas].

So lets get education in the 2015 Global Open Data Index!!
