n a democratic society, the government has a
mandate to make most information it collects
available to the public. Responding to demands
for data by statisticians, policymakers, research-
ers, businesses, investors, educators, and others,
federal and state agencies are providing access to a
vast amount of statistical data in electronic form.
Making this information accessible and useful has
posed two major challenges to the research and analy-
sis communities. The first is integrating large, dis-
persed collections of data compiled by different people
at different times and for different purposes. The sec-
ond is overcoming the limitations of the Web's
browser paradigm to disseminate complex informa-
tion derived from multiple sites.
