Global: Most governments still conceal data helpful in fighting corruption

Details

Most governments still conceal data helpful in fighting corruption despite G7 and G20 leader’s resolution seeking that such information be made available since it is instrumental in the fight against corruption. Myanmar, Mali and Haiti rank the least transparent countries in the Open Data Barometer, a global index of government data.  The top five countries are the UK, US, Sweden, France, and New Zealand. Improving transparency on government data can help reduce corruption and improve public services. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/01/20/us-governments-data-transparency-idUSKBN0KT1IS20150120
