What This Tracker Tells Us:
The RegData Live Tracker allows researchers and other interested parties to visually assess the quantity of regulation in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) on a daily basis. The tracker runs on the QuantGov platform, which quantifies regulation by counting the number of regulatory restrictions in the CFR (the words shall, must, may not, prohibited, and required). The tracker can display other attributes of regulations that the QuantGov platform identifies or quantifies, such as the levels of regulation targeting specific industries or the quantities produced by regulatory agencies at different points in time. Furthermore, the tracker can display multiple industry or agency regulatory restriction counts at the same time.
