Data.gov at 15

On May 21, 2009, Data.gov launched with a total of 47 datasets. After the landmark 2013 Open Data Policy required agencies to create comprehensive data inventories and public data listings, the site grew to 115,000+ datasets from 88 organizations by 2015. These requirements were enacted into the Open Government Data Act in 2019. Today, Data.gov is nearing 300,000 datasets and dataset collections in the catalog, harvested from over 100 organizations, and counts over a million monthly pageviews from people like you, looking to discover that information. In 2024, Data.gov continues its commitment to open government data and transparency. Thank you for 15 years!
