Putting Open Data Measurement to Use

The past years have seen a rise of measurement tools, assessing readiness implementation and impact of open government data publication. Some tools focus on national data collections whilst others have a focus on specific government agencies such as national statistics offices. To date,  more than 180 different indicators exist to metrify government performance. Sometimes, these indicators overlap, or are entirely similar.  In other cases, indicators apply very different assessment criteria.
Indices not only monitor, but also alter the behaviour of those who are measured. Recent insights show that those who are measured might adjust their actions to the metrics that fit their needs best. The co-existence of open data measurement tools prompts many questions. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each tool? What are the implications of their coexistence? Is it beneficial that multiple measurements exist? Do they contribute to the advancement of open data practices? And, based on these insights, what steps could be taken to alter the measurement landscape? This session will first explore the strengths and limitations of different measurement tools as well as their audiences. Based on these insights, the session will discuss methodological possibilities to more strongly align these tools.
