Value or impact of data
See below Primary data discovery channels
For FEMA - Mostly people go to or and can email us directly and or contribute to our FEMA Ideascale discussion board. We find the datapaloozas and hackathons very valuable and even hosted our first ever FEMA Data Town Hall this year. For Immigration Statistics - People and developers go to or DHS.Gov and research the various yearly and ad hoc reports created
See below User suggestions on improving data usability
DHS and FEMA haven’t had a lot of input on this from users. Most of the time FEMA gets questions about the use of our API because they haven’t read the instructions but with a few quick responses they generally figure it out.
See below User suggestions on additional data releases
Users generally have great suggestions for increasing the amount of metadata to FEMA and OIS datasets and or the frequency of the updates.
