The process for collecting new primary data was based on an expert researcher assessment survey. The work of scorers was supported by peer reviewers for each country (the scorer and the peer reviewer did their work independently of each other), in order to validate or otherwise question and improve the scorers results. A group of technical reviewers and regional reviewers also examined the scores for each indicator. A final level of checking and validation was conducted by the project team.
The World Wide Web Foundation would like to thank the following participants, who were instrumental in fulfilling and completing the assessment surveys for the Web Index and the Open Data Barometer. (Note: Some participants asked to remain anonymous.)
