What is public sector data information psdi l.jpg

What is Public Sector Data & Information (PSDI)?

  • Data and information generated by/for public sector agencies using public money.

  • Includes: health and education data, geographic data, financial reports, social and economic statistics, legislation and judicial proceedings, food and water resources data, and many other kinds of data and information.

  • In most countries, the public sector is the biggest single producer and owner of a large variety of information.

Potential Value of PSI to Societies

Given the special characteristics of the PSI (e.g., comprehensive-ness, reliability, timeliness, and accuracy), this information is considered by different stakeholders to have economic, social, and political values (Aichholzer & Buekert, 2004; Uhlir, 2004; Abd Hadi & McBride, 2000):

  • Governments

  • Private Sector

  • Scientific Communities

  • General Public

  • Civil Society Organizations

According to Horton (2002) diffusing public information and knowledge resources efficiently and effectively is essential to:

  • Sustaining the competitive competency of the country’s businesses and industries, in both domestic and global marketplaces;

  • Attaining the highest levels of educational excellence for all the nation’s children and adults in a lifelong learning context;

  • Enabling citizens to participate more effectively in all facets of a democratic society;

  • Informing public officials at all levels of government so that they can enact better laws, formulate and enact enlightened public policies, monitor the programs they authorize effectively, and govern fairly, equitably, and wisely; and,

  • Enhancing the quality of life of all a country’s citizens, including responsibility to the special government information needs of disadvantaged and disabled individuals.

Conclusions

The economic, social, and political values of PSI all have the potential to enable a more effective and transparent government, a healthier and competitive economy, as well as a more knowledgeable and responsible citizenry.

PSI represents an important asset with vast socio-economic potential.

It is an important element in the existence of a robust knowledge economy.
