USED Releases Overview of Data Inventory Beta Site

The U.S. Department of Education created a Data Inventory site (under OMB Directive M-13-13) that strives to increase transparency to the public and coordination across the Department regarding data collection. The site outlines data collected as part of grant activities, along with statistical data collected about the state of U.S. education.  The site details specific data elements and variables that are collected and used in studies and series of studies. Users are also able to explore the site by variable or via the comprehensive "Inventory List." USED recently released a powerpoint that provides a general overview of the site.
