Timely and reliable economic statistics are key to the work of both economists and journalists as they endeavor to grasp and crystallize the ever-evolving economic situation for their audiences. Threats to high-quality economic statistics include insufficient budgetary funding for the federal statistical system, resulting in cuts to programs and survey samples, and reduced survey response rates. The dynamic U.S. economy requires statistical agencies to constantly be modernizing, researching, and investing to ensure measurements keep pace.

Join the National Association for Business Economics (NABE) and the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW) for a panel discussion with senior officials from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the U.S. Census Bureau to learn how the agencies are innovating and evolving in a time of growing budgetary and political challenges.

Panelists

William Beach, Commissioner, Bureau of Labor Statistics
Mary Bohman, Acting Director and Deputy Director, Bureau of Economic Analysis
Ron S. Jarmin, Deputy Director and Chief Operating Officer, United States Census Bureau

Moderator

Pallavi Gogoi, Chief Business Editor, NPR
