Citizen Agenda-Setting, Digital Government, and the National Organic Program

This experiment in electronic government has yielded a rich database that, because of its format and size, presents novel analytical challenges. New methodologies are needed to efficiently assess and integrate citizen comments into the regulatory process. This researcher currently is collaborating with USDA staff who implemented the public comment process. Staff members have supplied an initial data set of over 20,000 comments submitted to the NOP via Internet technology.
