Availability Notice


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published the Information Digest annually since 1989. Beginning with this edition, the Digest will begin a 2-year publication cycle. The Digest provides information about agency activities and licensees from the various 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 2022–2023 Information Digest includes NRC data and non-NRC data (e.g., International Atomic Energy Agency, Energy Information Administration, and U.S. Department of Energy), which were updated as of September 30, 2022, including data in maps and graphics. Beginning with this edition, the Digest provides QR codes to direct users to the most current information. The next Information Digest containing updated data will be published in February 2025.

The NRC reviews the information from industry and international sources but does not independently verify it. 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.
