Large volumes of socio-economic data are collected about the developing world. However, licensing fees charged by publishers, along with a myriad of different ways of exchanging the data mean it is often unavailable to local researchers and citizens.
This presentation looks at ways in which country and regional level data can be made more accessible. It looks at the open data environment, and some of the freely available sources of data on developing countries. It examines some emerging technologies and standards that facilitate the dissemination and exchange of socio-economic data, including Linked Data and the Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX) initiative, and mobile devices.
