Local Anti-corruption Open Data Index
Stage 1 - Prototype Index
First iteration of the Index. The methodology was developed based on a literature review of international indexes and best practices when publishing open data. Seven states were selected to be part of the prototype.
The Index was built based on the 30 “Priority Datasets” outlined in the Open Up Guide of the Open Data Charter, adopted by the Executive Secretary of the Nacional Anti-corruption System. Some datasets were added to give more specificity to the Priority Datasets and to capture new areas (such as the area of procurement and elections data).
Each dataset was assigned to:
A stage of the Public Policy Cycle
A stage of the Anti-Corruption Cycle
A governance area
Each dataset was evaluated (0,1) according to the following criteria:

The results contemplate seven states, 30 variables, seven scoring criteria, five stages of the Public Policy Cycle, four stages of the Anti-Corruption Cycle, and six governance areas. The most important results from the Index are the composite scores from each state:
This tight range in composite scores does not mean that all states perform similarly across all areas. We recommend consulting the individual results of each state.
