Interesting, thanks for mentioning it. I wish we could also have more open poll data, instead of the system we have now.
Yeah, we agree!

Norway’s database<http://www.nsd.uib.no/nsd/nsdnytt/11-2/500_meningsmalinger.html> is the envy of all the Nordic countries, while people like me are left to manually update a wiki<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opinion_polling_for_the_next_Danish_general_election>—or for the Swedes behind the Ada bot, a GitHub repo<https://github.com/MansMeg/SwedishPolls/blob/master/Data/Polls.csv>.
Looks interesting... Will check it out further. Thanks for the advice!

Would love to have a Danish database reminiscent of what Norway has.
Denmark is moving faster in other ways regarding PSI so that's good!

Dear Nordic countries,

Yesterday, our Open Gov specialist Kristina Olausson posted a blog post about the situation around openness in Sweden regarding open data in connetion to the upcoming national elections on the 14th of September. If you can read Swedish, please have a look at the full text or enjoy the English summary below.

Summary in English: I recently published a report at the Swedish think-tank FORES on re-use of public sector information in Sweden. The result showed that marginal-cost on data is the most efficient way of creating the optimal re-use of such resources as we saw in several international studies. Under such conditions it is estimated that the European market would generate about 27 billion euro per year. However, for the Swedish market, no such socioeconomic analysis has been made. Another part of the report studied one particular governmental body, SMHI, as they last year chose to make their data free of charge. We wanted to know why they did so as many Swedish public sector bodies use the charges to cover the cost of their work. The answer was that they regarded it as a fundamental duty of them to create more public value and that lowering charges was part of this. As my quote from the IT-manager says: if other actors are better at using data under the same circumstances as SMHI, it could be proven that they are better at this than us.
