The insights page is the place where the index team and the OK network share their findings and learnings from the Global Open Data Index (GODI). We do so to record outcomes, share knowledge and to create a discussion about issues that are important to the open data community.
## The GODI 2016/17 Report: The State of Open Government Data In 2017
## The GODI 2016/17 Report: The State Of Open Government Data In 2017
This is Open Knowledge International’s first [State of Open Government Data report](https://blog.okfn.org/files/2017/06/FinalreportTheStateofOpenGovernmentDatain2017.pdf). Based on key findings from our work on the Global Open Data Index (GODI) 2016/17 it outlines the obstacles to open government data publication, and suggests steps that will allow progress in the field of open data.
The report identified three problem areas: 1) Data is hard (or even impossible) to find online, 2) data is often not readily usable, 3) open licensing is rare practice and jeopardised by a lack of standards. As such, institutions are producing information which is encoded in forms that are preventing data publishers and public users from communicating with one another.
We also identify that dialogue is critical to produce relevant data that can be used by civil society. GODI - more than only a benchmark - provides the platform for this dialogue. For GODI 2016/17, we ran a public dialogue between governments and data users for the first time to foster the production of meaningful data.
In this report we share learnings and outcomes from this process and explain important variables to further elaborate this dialogue model. This document is open to debate, to continue learning from your experiences. We would love to hear your feedback in our [discussion forum](https://discuss.okfn.org/c/open-data-index/general-discussion).
