Theory of Change Through Data

The Democratizing Data project is inspired by the 2018 Foundations for Evidence-based Policymaking Act. Its goal is to facilitate the collaboration between federal agencies and the public for the purpose of understanding how government data assets are used. The intent is to engage the public by providing information about the usage of the assets and expanding the use of the public data assets. As an initial step in meeting that goal, the Search and Discovery Platform describes how datasets identified by federal agencies have been used in scientific research. It uses machine learning algorithms to search over 90 million documents and find how datasets are cited, in what publications, and what topics they are used to study.
