The Open Government Data initiative aims at motivating governments and organizations to make information freely available and easily accessible online. This paper contributes to the understanding of the process of publishing public sector information as Linked Data and the use of the RDF Data Cube vocabulary for publishing statistical data. In order to facilitate the publication process, a specialized component has been implemented – the RDF Data Cube Validation tool, the main use of which is validating the integrity constraints defined in the W3C RDF Data Cube specification and automatic repair of observed/identified errors. The tool is a part of the LOD2 Statistical workbench, a unique set of tools for managing statistical Linked Data.
