What's New

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.

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 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 to provide additional state-level data and contextual information to be integrated in their state profile pages: Alaska, Montana, and Wyoming.

Contextual information

The How It Works section now has a question-and-answer format, along with several new elements:

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, added behind-the-scenes data tests, and made it easier to get to data-rich pages directly from the homepage.

What’s next?

The site is still in progress. Over the coming months, here’s what we’re looking forward to:
