What do Americans turn to Uncle Sam for online?

A chart published Sunday, created by Dadaviz CEO Jishai Evers using info from the federal government's new web traffic tracker, analytics.gov, is a stark display of what Americans are actually using the government's web presence to do.

The top items of interest, by a huge margin: weather and taxes.

Weather.gov and the IRS website dominate government site traffic rankings, with nearly 200 million hits between the two of them in a single month.

USA Jobs, the federal government's employment platform, is a distant third, followed by the Social Security Administration's website.

If you're looking for off-the-beaten-path government web resources, investor.gov has a handy compound interest calculator for retirement savings planning, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has an inflation calculator allowing you to see just how little your money is worth compared to yesteryear and the U.S. Geological Survey posts loads of beautiful images to Flickr on a regular basis.
