    Reviewer comments

    This submission is valid, thank you Joachim Mangilima for contributing to the Global Open Data Index. Several data portals appear to exist with statistics for Tanzania but there is no clear central location where up to data information is available in usable formats. Amended B2 to yes as data is available without having to register.
