As of November 2018, Data Planet provides usage statistics on Searches (Regular), Result Clicks, Record Views, and Access Denied compliant with COUNTER 4 Code of Practice definitions (below).
Data Planet is in the process of developing COUNTER 5 compliant statistics and reports. (COUNTER Reports present particular challenges for Data Planet because COUNTER Reports require that time period data be presented in columns, while the Data Planet platform is structured for presentation of time period data in rows.) In the interim, site administrators may access usage statistics on demand through the Data Planet User Admin module. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for credentials if your institution is not currently set up with access to the tool.
|Result Clicks||A click originating from a set of a set of search results, from browsing the database, or from a click on another database record. (Note that in Data Planet, a Result Click and a Record View are the same.)|
|Record Views||A successful request for a database view (for example, a chart/map/graph/trend) that has originated from a set of search results, from browsing the database, or from a click on another database record.|
|Searches (Regular)||A user-driven intellectual query, either by submitting a query using the search forms (Quick Search, Advanced Search, or State or International Statistical Overviews) or by making a selection via browsing.|
|Access Denied (No License)||User is denied access to Data Planet because the user or the user's institution does not have access rights. Note that in Data Planet access to content items is governed by the platform license.|
