Value or impact of data
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 DHS.gov has a digital strategy and Open Data web page that provides information on where to get DHS data. DHS also provides a developer page to inform users of the data available.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
DHS and FEMA haven’t had a lot of input on this from users. Most suggestions are concerning Webpage errors and missing information. 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. Users have requested additional trade data from CBP and API access to the USCIS Case Status page.
