National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) Releases New Versions Data Resources
From the U.S. Dept. of Commerce Blog:
NTIA has revamped everything from the questions we ask to the ways in which we report results so that the CPS [Current Population Survey] Supplement continues to be a relevant and valuable resource. This revamp includes our new NTIA Data Central, an easy-to-use source for locating statistics and charting trends.
The CPS Supplement has been a vital resource for policymakers since its inception. We want to make those data even more valuable to researchers and policy makers through NTIA Data Central.We are evolving NTIA’s Digital Nation series into a blog format to more quickly and nimbly provide data and expert analysis on the state of computer and Internet use in America.
We are significantly simplifying the task of gathering specific statistics of interest with our new Data Explorer tool. The Data Explorer locates desired metrics from among thousands of calculations performed on each dataset and represents them visually through illustrative charts. All of these calculations are also made available in the Analyze Table spreadsheet we are making available for download.
