The New Info Digest Hits The Streets (so to speak)

It’s that time of year again when the NRC publishes its Information Digest — an award winning publication that provides a summary of information about us and the industries we regulate. This year, we’re publishing our 24th edition.

The Information Digest is used by a wide array of people, including the public, industry stakeholders, government agencies and the media. It strives to provide a handy primer of the agency’s regulatory responsibilities and licensing activities.

This year we have incorporated InfoGraphics to help provide a visual representation of information and statistics. We’ve reduced those pie charts and replaced them with visually appealing and – we hope – more understandable graphics. It’s part of our agency’s efforts to be more open and transparent.

For your convenience, we’ve embedded hyperlinks to the electronic version of the Digest for easy navigation an access to more information on the major topics discussed. We continue to provide the NRC Facts at a Glance, a handy tear-out reference sheet that has quick facts and short answers to commonly asked questions. Also available online are all the Digest graphics, photographs and data sets.

Where can you find the Info Digest? The easiest way is through the NRC website click on Info Digest.

We also created a YouTube video that looks at what’s inside this year’s Digest.

We’re always interested in what you have to say about the Info Digest as we continue to work to make it better and more useful. Let us know with your comments below or send us an email at opa.resource@nrc.gov .

    Your YouTube video about this Information Digest was great and it made me want a hardcopy. When I tried to email distribution.services@nrc.gov the email bounced saying there is no distribution.services@nrc.gov. So you may want to update the YouTube video with the correct email address or establish on that matches what you put out on YouTube. I look forward to figuring out how to get a hardcopy of this first class publication. Keep up the great work Ivonne Couret!
