    Certainly, the results and conclusions of federally-funded research belong to us all.  I'm not so sure that the raw data do.  And I really don't think the numerous bits and pieces of analytic false starts and speculations should be public.

      That is a controversial issue, especially in medical research.  The criteria used to select/reject those "false starts" may reveal bias - or worse.  That information is also useful for other researchers trying to follow up or confirm a result.
