Availability Notice


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published the Information Digest annually since 1989. The Information Digest provides information about the agency activities and the licensees from different industries it regulates. It describes the agency’s responsibilities and activities and provides general information on nuclear-related topics. The Information Digest includes NRC and industry data in an easy-to-read format. Infographics help explain the information with visual aids.

The 2020–2021 Information Digest includes NRC data in the appendices and non-NRC data (e.g., International Atomic Energy Agency, Energy Information Administration, and U.S. Department of Energy) that were updated as of August 10, 2020, including data associated with maps and graphics. The Digest is an annual publication, with updates to certain non-NRC data every 2 years. The next Information Digest that will contain updated data will be published in August 2021. The Information Digest will direct readers to the most current information, which is available online.

The NRC reviews the information from industry and international sources but does not independently verify it. The Web Link Index provides sources for more information on major topics. The NRC is the source of all photographs, graphics, and tables unless otherwise noted. All information is final unless otherwise noted. Any corrections and updates will appear in the digital version of the publication on the NRC Web site.

The NRC welcomes comments or suggestions on the Information Digest. To submit comments, write to the Office of Public Affairs at U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001, or at
