This week the U.S. government unveiled a website that allows you to see the analytics of several government sites at once, including the IRS, National Weather Service and more.
According to the site, “This data provides a window into how people are interacting with the government online.” All the data comes from a “unified Google Analytics account” known as the Digital Analytics Program, which offers analytics to federal agencies to help them better understand how citizens find, access and use government services online. The open source project collects web traffic from nearly 300 executive branch government domains and will continue to add domains.
Concerned about privacy? The site does not track individual data or the IP addresses of users.
The top trending page right now? “Where’s my refund” on the IRS page.
