Assessment Summary

PDL: Only 24% of datasets have download URLs, 35.4% have broken links, and only 83% of datasets are in the correct format.

Use and Impact: Use & Impact: Qualitative responses could use more depth and detail about how engagement with data customers has lead to new ideas or actions for improvement.

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.

Status Indicator Automated Metrics
Overall Progress this Milestone
Identified 5 data improvements for this quarter
See below Primary Uses
The uses vary widely. The top 3 users (4 and 5 are just sample or test apps) outside DOL used data to either find new business opportunities, highlight information in the data, or just report the data. The third example is actually our #1 user, the Census Bureau, who did not respond.
See below Value or impact of data
Conceptually, the value and/or impact has been greater business generated and awareness of issues in the workplace.
See below Primary data discovery channels
There has not been a single channel that has stood out. Social media support for open data at DOL has been weak. This is an issue that those responsible for open data and social media have been working on together since the social gov summit on open data.
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
The media has asked for economic indicators without the annual summary calculations. We are working on providing that data.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
We have received a request for additional economic indicators released in a more digestible format from the media. We will be releasing these gradually over the coming weeks.
