Maintaining the Quality and Integrity of US Government Data – Discussion and Mixer

Posted By David Wilhite

Accessible, accurate and reliable government data is essential to business journalism and democracy. The dynamic U.S. economy requires statistical agencies to constantly be modernizing, researching, and investing to ensure measurements keep pace. Find out what government agencies are doing to keep their data sacred at a discussion and mixer presented by SABEW, NPR, American Institutes for Research and the National Association for Business Economics.

Join us as NPR Business Editor Marilyn Geewax leads a discussion with representatives of the big-three data agencies — the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Census Bureau. And stick around to develop sources and story leads at a reception and mixer with business journalists and economists.
