    I’m thrilled to have discovered this blog, and I love the new Stats by State. I was curious: Are there plans to offer this info in another format like XML, etc.? I could see people (developers) doing a lot of neat mashups, correlations, etc. with this type of information.



    Hi Alex,

    We hope to always keep improving the data we disseminate. This is just the first step.
