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 key economic and demographic indicators are available in the official website of the National Institute of Statistics, mainly in Arabic or French. Most of them are regularly updated (most recently Nov 11th 2014). There is no explicit license indicated neither on the Institute's website nor in the individual documents. As in such cases default copyright seems to apply, we consider data to not comply with the definition of openly licensed data.
