Integration of Data and Interfaces to Enhance
Understanding of Government Statistics:
Toward the National Statistical Knowledge Network
NSF Grant EIA 0131824
NSF Grant EIA 0129978


The GovStat Project seeks to create an integrated model of user access to and use of US government statistical information that is rooted in realistic data models and innovative user interfaces. This project is a joint effort of the University of North Carolina Interaction Design Lab and the University of Maryland Human-Computer Interaction Lab, July 1, 2002-June 30, 2005.

This work will be completed with an eye toward the creation of a unified Statistical Knowledge Network (SKN). Our vision of integration ultimately aims to make resident-government interactions in the statistical data realm more of a partnership rather than strictly a one-way dissemination of information.
