The Open Data Portal (https://date.gov.md/) is a public informational resource aimed to provide the public with data collected and produced by authorities, state institutions, and Government in general. The Open Date Portal is a governmental service that offers possibility for entities to access authentic, upright, and accurate data from registers and state information systems, in real time, in line with their legal purpose. This is statistical data or structured data that is reflected in a list or non-narrative form and that can be transmitted in digital format and processed automatically. Open government data is freely available to anyone for use, copying, transmission, distribution, modification, transformation, republication, without any restrictions or control mechanisms.
Currently 12 Ministries and 5 Governmental institutions publish open data sets on the referred Portal with more than 1170 open data sets on various categories containing structural, statistical data either reflected as a list or in non-narrative form, published and available to the public in various formats, like XLS, xlsx, PDF, CSV, Docx, Docs, ZIP, Xlsb, TXT.
