My DHS Idea
One of the main goals of DHS Open Data is to facilitate the release of DHS high-value datasets whenever possible. High-value datasets include data that: were previously not provided but increase accountability and responsiveness, increase public knowledge, further the core mission of DHS, create economic opportunity or respond to identified needs or demands. DHS will continue to make more datasets available as we follow our process for identifying and approving the release of high-value datasets. If you have ideas or suggestions for new datasets or datasets you have seen on one of the DHS web sites then join in the conversation at My DHS Idea, our online ideation platform. You can also email your ideas to EDMO@hq.dhs.gov.
