Twenty-first century governments must keep pace with the expectations of their citizens
and deliver on the promise of the digital age. Data-driven approaches are particularly
effective for meeting those expectations and rethinking the way governments and citizens
interact. This report highlights the important role data can play in creating conditions
that improve public services, increase the effectiveness of public spending and inform
ethical and privacy considerations. It presents a data-driven public sector framework
that can help countries or organisations assess the elements needed for using data
to make better-informed decisions across public sectors.
