Units of Aid
Activities are reported in a hieararchy with two levels: Level 1 corresponds with the level of Projects/Components and level 2 equals the level of engagements/commitments. All transactions are reported at level 2.
Segmentation of Published Data
Data is published via an API that offers three solutions: the complete file, automated pagination (currently 7 files) with no overlap or missing data extract per country
Data Definitions and References
The API (o-data extension) offers codelists, matching the 'other identifiers' in the file, e.g. the internal identifiers for partnerorganisations.
The current file is stil shaped by the intention to 'publish what you have', with timeliness and frequency and a 100% coverage of Danish ODA as a priority.
Activity data are pulled straight from the source systems, with no delay for verification. Transactions are reported when booked. Any correction, e.g. reclassification, will be reported as a new transaction.
Data is available for expert-users directly from the API, e.g. by o-data connection. Data is available for anyone in the portal OpenAid.dk
