Data VIC: Researching government worker attitudes to open data

Throughout 2018 Data VIC conducted research into open data practices in the Australian government sector to inform Victorian policy on open data. The past decade has seen rapid developments in how government data is produced, assessed, released and re-used.

A new report is coming which will answer the following research questions:

  1. What are the attitudes of government agency workers towards the implementation of open data policies and what factors contribute to the success or failure of open data programs? 
  2. What are the indicators of open data maturity and how can open data programs be improved? 
  3. What factors contribute to, or limit, the release of open data?
