World Bank Open Data Platform

  • The World Bank's Open Data Initiative launched in April, 2010, providing free, open and easy access to development data, and challenging the global community to use the data to create new solutions to address poverty.

  • Today, the World Bank's Open Data Catalog includes over 8,000 development indicators, of which 1,400 for 252 countries and 36 aggregate groupings, going back over 50 years, in 5 languages, and is continuously expanding.


Economic value of open data

Economic Value of Open Data

  • In the EU, open data increases business activity by up to €40 Billion/year, and provides direct and indirect benefits up to €200 Billion/year (1.7% of EU GDP).

  • Open Weather Data in the US has created 400 companies employing 4,000 people.

  • A Spanish study found an increase of about €600m of business from open data with the creation of over 5000 jobs.

  • An Australian study found a return on investment of 500% from Open Data.

  • Mapping and transport data in particular have given rise to new industries, including a suite of global positioning system products, and ‘mashups’ that combine mapping data with public transportation or traffic data.
