re:dash allows to run SQL queries on the Open Knesset database.

Warning!

Official Knesset Data which we depend on might be unreliable and open to interpretation.
Queries might show wrong data, depending on the interpretation of the data.

some useful queries:

Ratio of speaking/attending committee meetings

http://data.obudget.org/queries/626/source?p_mk_names=mk,names,separated by,commas

  • Get all committees an MK(s) spoke at, spoke at only once during meeting, and attended. ratios are calculated.
  • Important: name has to be exactly as it appears in the List of MK Names

http://data.obudget.org/queries/630/source?p_from_date=2016-05-22&p_to_date=2016-08-07

  • Data for all Current MKs.
  • Data is filtered between dates (yyyy-mm-dd).

how many times MK spoke in committee meetings

http://data.obudget.org/queries/604/source#table

  • change member_id=943 to the id of the mk you want to investigate. See getting memeber id query below.
  • protocolpart.header LIKE '%נאוה בוקר%' or protocolpart.header LIKE '%נוה בוקר%' - change to the mk name, including alternate spellings, you an add more or protocolpart.header parts if there are more alternate names.
  • you can use getting all MK names query below to get all the alternative spellings of the MK name.

http://data.obudget.org/queries/625/source?p_mk_names=יאיר לפיד,נאוה בוקר,ג`מאל זחאלקה

  • Get all committees an MK spoke at, and how many times he/she did - for multiple MKs, by their name.
  • Important: name has to be exactly as it appears in the List of MK Names

all meetings an MK attended

http://data.obudget.org/queries/639/source?p_from_date=2016-05-22&p_to_date=2016-08-08

  • For each Committee and each MK, the query returns the number of meetings attended, total number of meetings, ratio, and whether MK is a committee member (or chairperson)
  • All Current MKs
  • Plenum Excluded
  • Date Range as parameter

http://data.obudget.org/queries/608/source#table

  • change mks_attended.member_id = 943 to the mk ID you want to check. See getting memeber id query below.
  • this is based on open knesset code that looks for member names in the protocol. This process works for most cases, but there might be problems with Knesset members that have names with different spellings.

http://data.obudget.org/queries/620/source?p_mk_name=אמיר אוחנה

  • Use this Query, to get all MKs attended by MK Name (excluding מליאה)

[http://data.obudget.org/queries/719?source?p_mk_names=נאוה בוקר,יאיר לפיד,אמיר אוחנה] (http://data.obudget.org/queries/719?source?p_mk_names=נאוה בוקר%20יאיר לפיד%20אמיר אוחנה)

  • Use this Query, which receives a list of MK names as input, to get committees in which 2 or more of the given MKs attended (excluding מליאה)
  • In case the user gave more than 2 MK names, the results will appear in descending order starting with the committees containing the most relevant MKs.
  • Important: name has to be exactly as it appears in the List of MK Names

Missing Protocols Data

http://data.obudget.org/queries/642/source?p_from_date=2015-03-30&p_to_date=2016-08-07

  • Between given dates, for every committee, return number of known meetings (from events_event table) and number of meetings without a protocol (not found also in committees_committeemeeting).
