The indicators used by this website are based on data collected and owned by local governments. This data is crucial to assess the preparedness of a city or province and to prompt evidence-based policy-making.
To maximise the impact of this data, it should open, which means accessible to third parties (citizens, NGOs, journalists...) in an easy-to-use format and published under a clear licence allowing analysis and transformation of the data, as outlined in the Open Definition. The openness of the key datasets used in this website varies a lot among the local governments of the Philippines. This index allows anyone to track which city or province opens their data and how open is it.
