The Sunlight Foundation, Open The Government and the Center for Democracy and Technology have done it again. They’ve created yet another cool initiative called Show Us the Data for you to “identify the 10 Most Wanted Government Documents, Reports or Data Sets that should be available on the Web”!

Is the federal government putting the information you need online? Are there categories of unclassified documents or data that you know exist–on paper or in government computers and databases–that would be of value to the public if posted and regularly updated on an agency’s Web site? If so, then help Open The Government and the Center for Democracy and Technology identify the 10 Most Wanted Government Documents, Reports or Data Sets that should be available on the Web. Use this site to tell us what data you want and who has it, (“Request a Document”) or add your vote (up to three times) to the suggestions others have made.
The deadline to submit documents and vote is March 9, 2009
