Hi Berna,

I've added a couple more reviews to the spreadsheet, from opposite ends 
of the spectrum. One is an effort by one or two activists in an 
off-shore island state (Guernsey) that is commendable in terms of what 
it achieves given its origin; however, it doesn't score well (not 
surprisingly). At the other end is datausa.io which is a highly 
professional aggregate and visualisation site with serious funding. I 
reviewed this one in particular as I thought it would be evidence for 
things that are likely to be missing from simple portals, like 
enrichment. Another one that comes to mind is http://opentrials.net/. 
I'll look at that when I get time (unless someone beats me to it of 

The datausa.io site is not really a place where you'd go to get a 
dataset. It's an 'infomediary' site but it does link back to the 
original sources, most of which are US census datasets. So it scores 
badly on things like metadata (I can't find any) but really well on the 
API stuff.
