A new report, funded by IATI’s Data Use Working Group, has researched how IATI data is being accessed and used. Open Data Watch, who delivered the report, were tasked with creating an inventory of IATI training materials and data use tools and conducting a gap analysis to understand what materials could be created to support data users.
This document provides a gap analysis that integrates the results from multiple avenues of research, including the results from ODW’s inventory of training materials and data-use tools, research on IATI data use (through Google Analytics, Brand24, and query analyses), findings from Open Data Watch (ODW)’s survey on data use, and findings from subsequent focus groups that explored issues and suggestions raised by the surveys in greater depth. Each component is critical to substantiating and providing qualitative insight into the gap analysis.
