Open Data Portal

There is no “data.gov” portal in Turkey that resembles international examples. However, within the scope of the Official Statistics Program (RİP), there is work for preparing and broadcasting national statistics and data sets according to certain standards on www.resmistatistik.gov.tr. Through this portal open access is provided to all statistics that are provided in an official capacity.  

Ongoing work:

In line with the action of “E4.2.1.Developing an Open Data Sharing Portal” included in the 2016-2019 National e-Government Strategy and Action Plan observing open data sharing principles and personal information security / privacy, the data that is produced in public agencies, local governments, the private sector and non-governmental organizations will be opened to the use of all benefit providers from a common data source as open data. In this scope, rather than each agency sharing the data that is in their own possession, certain criteria and formats will be created so that the data is made compliant with these criteria and presented over a centralized platform.
