In creating this report, USAFacts interviewed Congressional staff to understand topics of interest to their offices and the challenges that arise when using data. These interviews spanned the House of Representatives and the Senate and included Republican and Democratic offices. These conversations identified several topics that we used to structure this report. We hope that members of Congress and their staff can use the metrics and data visualizations in this report as starting points for debates on policy and areas of interest.
