In the current release of Regulations.gov, we've included a preview of summary statistics and a graphic of site content for 2009. This is the first of many forthcoming dashboard and graphic tools intended to make information from Regulations.gov more accessible and useful. So, here’s our plan:
- Include more types of summary data
- Dynamically generate summary data and display in real-time
- Highlight effective dates and impacted industries
- Display geographic areas identified or affected by regulatory actions
There are various challenges to expanding these types of tools particularly in the completeness of the source data, but we think there are benefits.
What other types of summary data would you find useful? Tell us what you think.
