Public data collected or possessed by administrative agencies and subsequently released as Open Data is expected to bring about positive economic effects. The purpose of this paper is to establish whether that expectation holds true and how to best estimate the positive economic effect provided by the utilization of open data. This paper considers previous research covering the economic impact of open data and the utility of the approaches they suggest. And we have conducted a survey in line with the actual situation of Open Data of Japan. As a result, it was suggested that the Open Data has a positive economic effect for the local government.
