Researchers and analysts want more data. Managers want to spend less on data. Reuse of data can help researchers, analysts, and managers improve their return on investment in generating, collecting, or managing data. Reuse also can enhance data quality and validate results. Federal policy that encourages broader access to data collected using federal funds, as well as new technologies that help curate and manage data, increase opportunities to enhance the value of and to repurpose data.
