Posted: 2/6/2018 (Conference)

The Chief Statistician of the United States and the Statistical and Science Policy Branch (SSP) in the U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) seek to establish priorities and coordinate research efforts across the Federal Statistical System to focus on improving federal statistics. In particular, a priority has been placed on using new techniques and methodologies based on combining data from multiple sources. To support this effort, information is requested on: (1) Current and emerging techniques for linking and analyzing combined data; (2) on-going research on methods to describe the quality of statistical products that result from these techniques; (3) computational frameworks and systems for conducting such work; (4) privacy or confidentiality issues that may arise from combining such data; and (5) suggestions for additional research in those or related areas.”

We would like to get a robust response to this request and are hoping that you can help spread the word.  If you haven’t already, please share this link with your constituencies, in newsletters, and with anyone you think would be interested in responding.  The details on how to submit a response are in the RFI.

Please contact us with any questions.
