Assessment Summary

EDI file for February was not in JSON format and could not be assessed.

PDL: The number of records fell 4% this quarter, and 9% do not working links. Public engagement: No proof of two way communication and still relies on an email address for feedback (EDMO@hq.dhs.gov).

Use and Impact: Qualitative response for value and improvement could use more detail. Currently there is little evidence of close communication with the user community.

Note: The doughnut charts for Inventory Composition, Public Dataset Status, and Dataset Link Quality are new for this milestone, and they only appear is data are available. For detailed documentation on these charts, please see http://labs.data.gov/dashboard/docs#doughnut_charts. The "Other" category includes URLs that did not provide a response within 5 seconds of the automated crawl, which may indicate a server issue and not necessarily a completely non-working link.

Overall Progress this Milestone
Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
For FEMA - Safety preparedness tools and or visualizations. For Immigration Statistics (OIS) - Immigration Tracking, Congressional and Immigration Requests
See below Value or impact of data
For FEMA - It allows people to prepare and ideally mitigate potential risks and hazards. Ideally the use of our data helps change behaviors by reducing fire incidents or convincing people to buy homes that are less prone to floods. For Immigration Statistics - It alllows the public, Congress and migration-focused organizations to determine trends
See below Primary data discovery channels
For FEMA - Mostly people go to data.gov or fema.gov/data and can email us directly and or contribute to our FEMA Ideascale discussion board. We find the datapaloozas and hackathons very valuable and even hosted our first ever FEMA Data Town Hall this year. For Immigration Statistics - People and developers go to Data.gov or DHS.Gov and research the various yearly and ad hoc reports created
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
DHS and FEMA haven’t had a lot of input on this from users. Most of the time FEMA gets questions about the use of our API because they haven’t read the instructions but with a few quick responses they generally figure it out.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
Users generally have great suggestions for increasing the amount of metadata to FEMA and OIS datasets and or the frequency of the updates.
