Population up to 2014. Unemployment up to 2012. GDP up to 2013 on this data portal.
Budget available for 2014 (Arabic) in PDF as well as a "Circulaire de préparation du budget de l'état pour l'année 2015". As it is unclear what the status of Tunisia's Open Data initiative is, solely the website of the data producer has been considered for this research.

Update: The site for the Tunisian Official Gazette seems to be down (http://www.iort.gov.tn/), however we found the list of laws in PDF's here, http://www.e-justice.tn/index.php?id=36 (Ministry of Justice web portal, http://www.e-justice.tn/).
As stated below, recent laws projects are published in the Constituent Assembly's official website (currently, Assembly of the Representatives of the People), and we were able to find recent laws here from August 2015, (http://www.arp.tn/site/loi/AR/index.jsp), thus we assume data is timely and up to date.
Last year's comment below: Data is available on the Tunisian Official Gazette website. Also, since 2012, recent laws projects are published in the Constituent Assembly's official website: http://www.anc.tn/site/main/AR/docs/projets/liste_projets.jsp On this website, documents are available in PDF formats.
Disclaimer: Parliamentary Elections were held on Oct 26th, 2014 and the Presidential election is scheduled on November 23rd 2014 - This submission to the Open Data Index was made on November 20th, 2014
Preliminary results from the Oct 2014 election are available here: http://www.isie.tn/documents/arrete-resultats-preliminaires.pdf
Data on the 2011 elections is available from the Instance supérieure independante pour les élections (in Arabic). This data, not available in machine readable formats, was scrapped and used to build: http://tunisiaelectiondata.org/# (Mourakiboun, Development Seed, Democracy International). However, the links from Tunisia Election Data and from the 2013 Global Open Data Index to 2011 election data are now dead.
Reviewer: When surveyed after the parliamentary elections and after the first round of the presidential (on Nov 26), the ISIE website provided preliminary results from the presidential elections and additional information and data on the parliamentary elections. See: http://www.isie.tn/documents/%D9%82%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%B1%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%AD%20%D8%A8%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D8%AA%D8%A7%D8%A6%D8%AC%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%88%D9%84%D9%8A%D8%A9%20%D9%84%D9%84%D8%AF%D9%88%D8%B1%D8%A9%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A3%D9%88%D9%84%D9%89%20%D9%84%D9%84%D8%A7%D9%86%D8%AA%D8%AE%D8%A7%D8%A8%D8%A7%D8%AA%20%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B1%D8%A6%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%8A%D8%A9.pdf
I would thus consider information to be released on a timely basis -- even if the "data" is print-out, manually signed and then re-scanned PDF.
Same as last year. Previous year's comment follows:
The website http://www.poste.tn/codes.php allows to map a locality to a zip code, but the data is not open (according to the Open Definition). It is also possible to map a locality with latitude/longitude in this official government web site http://interieur.gov.tn/projects/geodata/# This second website is under Creative Commons by 3.0 licence (http://opendata.interieur.gov.tn/ar/catalog/coordonnees-des-chefs-lieux-des-gouvernorats-de-la-republique-tunisienne).
Since this year's criterion requires Individual record of transactions, date of the transactions, government office which had the transaction and name of vendor, we do not think the data provided by the government meets such criterion.
See last year's comment below.
Some data annual expenditure data can also be accessed here: http://www.finances.gov.tn/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=127&Itemid=303&lang=fr
As yearly (high level) data is available, we can safely assume that the government has monthly data as well but this is not available online.
Via the Open Data Tunisia portal, the most recent budget/spending data is from 2012 (PDF) http://www.data.gov.tn/fr/index.php?option=com_mtree&task=viewlink&link_id=40&Itemid=187
This does however indicate that the data exists and the Open Budget Library has year end reports for 2014 which indicate digital form.
PDF Reports published in the official website of the National Agency for Environment Protection from 2005 to 2008. No more updates since then. The website and the information it contains are the property of the Agency, thus data is considered non-open.
(No change from 2013) 2015: The agency website is no longer accessible
16.10.2015 : it seem National Agency for Environmental Protection is Monitoring Air Quality data from a CONFERENCE PAPER of Hassen Kchih from the Agency Tunisian Air Quality Monitoring Network Presentation no data was fond in their web site
https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274076911_Tunisian_Air_Quality_Monitoring_Network_Presentation ABSTRACT It is among the basic missions of the National Agency for Environmental Protection (NAEP) to preserve and improve the quality of our nation's air. In order to accomplish this mission, the Agency must be able to evaluate the status of the atmosphere compared to clean air standards and historical informations. That's why the NAEP established since 1996 an Air Quality Monitoring Network (AQMN) composed by thirteen permanent monitoring stations, two mobiles laboratories and a data elaboration centre with the aim of characterizing human health exposure and public impacts of conventional pollutants. In Tunisia, that extends over 163900 km² and includes 24 metropolitans towns, there are several permanent monitoring stations located in many towns like Tunis, Sfax, Sousse, Gabès Tozeur, Kef. In this paper, some stations of Tunisia and its monitoring networks have been selected as representative sites of the investigated area. In Tunis, the selected monitoring stations were located in Traffic area (Bab Saadoun), in urban area (El Mourouj) and in a suburban area (Nahli). Each station is provided with automatic analyzers of O 3 , NOx, SO 2 , PM10, CO and with meteorological sensors such as temperature, barometric pressure, relative humidity, solar radiation, wind speed and direction. Nitrogen oxides, NO and NO 2 , were analysed using the chemiluminescence method. The measurement of ozone is based on the capacity of such gases to absorb ultraviolet rays with opportune wavelengths, generated by built-in lamp. Carbon monoxide CO is analyzed infrared rays absorption (IR). The measurement of PM10 is based on the beta ray attenuation method while SO 2 is analysed using a fluorescence method. For all parameters, the data are collected by the monitoring network every hour. The data were validated according to this protocol: first, a preliminary validation was carried out by the software, which invalidated all the data occurred in calibration hours and the data identified as artifacts then a manual calibration was carried out by the operators, considering the relations among the parameters. This way it is possible to verify that eventual critical data are related to real pollution situations. Moreover, meteorological data (wind speed and direction) were used to investigate about the influence of natural events on high or low concentration situations
Two day forecasts are available including min, max temperature, wind speed and direction, and an icon representing precipitation (http://www.meteo.tn/htmlar/donnees/observation.php and http://www.meteo.tn/listear/previsions/previsions.php).
Historic monthly statistics are available (e.g. http://www.meteo.tn/htmlar/donnees/janv.html).
The National Water Distribution Utility website (http://www.sonede.com.tn/) has few information about water ressources and their projects. However, the minimum requirements are not satisfied (no information about the level of chemicals by water source)
This site lists ongoing tenders (http://www.marchespublics.gov.tn/) but we were not able to find awards.
We could not find data beyond what is mentioned last year. We checked this (http://www.cnt.nat.tn/ar/index.php?m=45) and here is last year's comment below:
Data is not available online at all.
The Interior Ministry's Open Data website has a map with names of governorates (provinces) and the respective number of delegations for each. But it's not map data as per the indicator's definition. http://opendata.interieur.gov.tn/fr/datas/index/type:3
The map data on this website is from OpenStreetMap. The license is CC-by 3.0 Unported (indicated at the bottom of the website).
We checked in September 8, and it stated last update was in August 31. So it is updated. In the Industrial Business Directory is contains only companies with more than 10 employees. Total registered is 5,636, as for the Directory Service companies the total registered is 3,117. Names of companies and addresses are listed, but no unique identifier seem to exist, only company legal names (Dénomination) and Raison Sociale. We are not sure these are all the companies in Tunisia, especially that it is stated in their FAQ that "To be included in the directory of industrial companies, which is available free of charge to operating industrial enterprises operating in Tunisia and employing ten people or more, contact the Regional Directorate of the API implementation that covers your region". Which means only companies who contact them are being listed.
