Video: What happens when you collect .gov-wide analytics

This month, the digital services family of U.S. Digital Services (USDS) Headquarters, 18F, Presidential Innovation Fellows, General Services Administration’s Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technology (OCSIT), and more, got together at the inaugural moveForward(100); event to share their work. One of the projects 18F shared was the analytics.usa.gov dashboard.

The dashboard collects web traffic data for participating federal government websites and displays interesting information like the total number of people on those websites right now and the top 20 most popular pages.

Fitting with the moveForward(100); event, analytics.usa.gov was a collaborative project between numerous offices including 18F, USDS, OCSIT, and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. As noted in the video, the team put the site together in about three weeks, but the data came from the GSA’s Digital Analytics Program, which has been two years in the making.

Watch the video above to learn more about analytics.usa.gov from 18F’s Leah Bannon and Charles Worthington of USDS or learn more about how the team built the site.
