Motivation[edit]

Through the Survey of Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions, the National Science Foundation (NSF) publishes a large amount of statistical data on federally funded research institutes in the United States. See here: https://ncsesdata.nsf.gov/profiles/site?method=showListOfInsts . Internally, NSF tracks their data using a unique numerical "FICE code" identifier, see here: https://www.nsf-surveys.net/FedSupport/(S(2515p4jguqfvbqesj2jq0jwc))/help/download_codebook.aspx . This proposal would produce a property to hold this ID, so that Wikidata item pages on research institutes would be linked to their respective NSF data. Such an ID is conceptually similar to the Microsoft Academic ID (P6366) property. Photocyte (talk) 18:19, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
