For all levels of economic development, countries that participate in the Open Government Partnership attain higher WJP Open Government Index 2015 scores than non-member countries. 

Since 2011, 65 countries have joined the Open Government Partnership (OGP) – a community of governments that work together with civil society to become more open, accountable, and responsive. Member states work with civil society to produce an action plan (a set of open government commitments). A new action plan can be implemented after 2 years. According to the WJP Open Government Index 2015 data, OGP countries attain higher open government scores than non-member countries for all levels of development. OGP countries in their second action plan cycle also perform better than countries in their first action plan cycle.
