This empirical study draws on both official and independent assessments during the first years of implementation of Mexico’s 2003 open government reform. The data show substantial progress overall, combined with significant variation across federal agencies and a growing trend towards official denials of the “existence” of requested information. The findings indicate that support for and resistance to open government is unevenly distributed across the public sector. Future analysis of varying patterns of agency compliance should address both agency-specific incentives and institutional cultures.
