Requests and appeals data in right to information systems : Brazil, India, Jordan, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, United Kingdom, and United States (英语)

This paper provides a summary of data about requests and appeals published by central reporting bodies in eight countries. It was prepared for the World Bank as part of a larger study on the implementation of right to information (RTI) laws. It examines available RTI data about requests and appeals from the most recent year of aggregated data—ranging between 2011 and 2013. It does not evaluate subnational data. It assessed these statistics for Brazil, India, Jordan, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand, The United Kingdom, and the United States. Through this assessment it provides trends in how countries are collecting and publishing these data. Statistics were retrieved from annual reports and through online portals. Online portals were used for Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. The types of data collected include: volume of requests and rate of responses, types of requesters, type of information requested, agencies receiving requests, use of exemptions, appeals and complaints, and sanctions.
