High-value Data
• used to increase agency accountability and
responsiveness;
• improve public knowledge of the agency and its
operations;
• further the core mission of the agency;
• create economic opportunity; or
• respond to need and demand as identified through
public consultation
(The U.S. Office of Management and Budget, 2009)

Tips on Identifying High-Value Data
• Reports, surveys or other public documents that have
been published by the organisation, or
• Data requests that have been received by the
organisation, e.g. ePQs or FOI requests.
• Data behind Key Performance Indicators, e.g. those used
in IrelandStat
