This site launched in December 2015 with the full data and contextual information of the 2015 USEITI Report. In response to user feedback in early 2015, we initiated a significant effort to make the site easier to understand.
This version of the site includes new content, new state-level datasets, and completely new ways of exploring all data.
State and national profile pages
In our research, users looked for information about their state and expressed interest in seeing data about their area across multiple datasets. New regional profile pages provide a more complete picture of extractive industries at the national and subnational levels. To see how this works, explore:
- The national profile page
- State profiles like Texas, Utah, or California
- Offshore areas, like the Gulf of Mexico or offshore Alaska areas
The profile pages also include more granular disbursements data, which shows how the Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) distributes revenue from the extractive industries to national funds and tribes and to state governments (for example, Arizona or Louisiana).
USEITI also invited states to opt in to the reporting process, with the goal of making state-level data more navigable for the public. In 2016, three states worked with the Independent Administrator
The How It Works section now has a question-and-answer format, along with several new elements:
- Reconciliation data: This data was previously available, but we’ve redesigned the presentation to make it easier to understand and view the full results of the USEITI reconciliation process.
- New contextual information: The Multi-Stakeholder Group
approved new content about the Coal Excise Tax, Abandoned Mine Land Reclamation Program, and audits and assurances to ensure accurate revenue data.
Other updates and design changes
We’ve also updated county case studies with more recent data, made content and design elements more consistent throughout the site, added terms to the glossary
The site is still in progress. Over the coming months, here’s what we’re looking forward to:
