  1. Hello,

    I’m thrilled to have discovered this blog, and I love the new Stats by State. I was curious: Are there plans to offer this info in another format like XML, etc.? I could see people (developers) doing a lot of neat mashups, correlations, etc. with this type of information.

    Thanks,

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    We hope to always keep improving the data we disseminate. This is just the first step.

    Thanks!
