Key national statistics such as demographic and economic indicators (GDP, unemployment, population, etc). To satisfy this category, the following minimum criteria must be met:

  • GDP for the whole country updated at least quarterly
  • Unemployment statistics updated at least monthly
  • Population updated at least once a year

Data Location


The quality and openness of the data varies. Some are available up to date and in usable spreadsheets, some docs or pdfs. Terms of use state that data is freely available, but the author must be attributed and the statistical figures must not be changed.

For example, data from Population and Housing Census 2011 are available in machine readable formats (XLS, CSV).

GDP data is available as individual spreadsheets per quarter.

Unemployment data are redirected to Eurostat website.

Reviewer comments

After a discussion with fellow open data experts I decided to changed the variable "available in bulk" to unsure. Demographic data are available in bulk whereas economic data (for example GDP), are non-bulk. Unsure seems as the best option to us then.
