Required agency data missing from Data.gov

New downloadable statistics that agencies posted online on Jan. 22 disappeared on Monday, according to a government Web site tracking department participation. Agencies uploaded almost 300 new data sets on Friday, as required by the open government directive.

But researchers at transparency group Openthegovernment.org noticed on Monday that some of the listings had been taken down. For example, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission reported on Jan. 22 that it had posted four sets, but only two data sets were listed on Monday. Likewise, the Peace Corps last week communicated it had posted three sets, but no data sets were noted today.
