I have just started exploring data.gov and want to ensure i understand relationships under a Topic. If i pick a Topic, then it lists # of datasets mapped to the topic. Then we have Categories, Tags, Organizations, Publishers and Bureaus. I can infer the following: - A dataset mapped to a Topic can show in another Topic as well - Datasets published by an Organization add up to total data set for the topic

? What is the purpose of Categories under a Topic? A subclassing below Topic? ? Organization, Publisher and Bureau any linkage that can be inferred? ? Is there a metrics download where I can get stats on the above constructs? I did download a metrics file but it has stats on agency/ subagency and datasets. Eg: Topic of Finance = 102 datasets. Is this metric and others like these downloadable?

Thanks in advance!
