State RegData

Bringing Industry-Specific Analysis of Regulation to State Governors and Lawmakers

State RegData extends the logic of the RegData Project to the American states. Like RegData US 3.0 Annual, State RegData datasets employ the QuantGov platform to download and analyze state regulations, turning thousands of pages of dense regulatory text into tractable datasets. Each state dataset contains the following data outputs: restriction counts, word counts, and industry relevance. These data are available for the entire state or for specific agencies or departments within the state. The production of each State RegData dataset requires unique code development. QuantGov is steadily working through each state’s regulations and will continue to post new state datasets as it completes them.
