How open is the data?

This submission is valid, thank you Hazwany Jamaluddin for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Added GDP to list of datasets available. Updates are made on the main website but not in downloadable files so effort is required to make data usable (B9 amended from 3 to 1), both in terms of collating data (B5 changed to no) and formats available.
