April 20, 2021 1460

On Wednesday, April 21, 2021 the Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT) will hold a public webinar from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the recently released report Principles and Practices for a Federal Statistical Agency, Edition 7. The report is intended to support the invaluable role of widely available, trustworthy, relevant, accurate, and timely government statistics. CNSTAT of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine developed these principles and practices and has refined and updated them periodically as part of its mission to provide an independent review of federal statistical activities. CNSTAT intends for its principles and practices to assist statistical agencies and units, as well as other agencies engaged in statistical activities, to carry out their responsibilities to provide accurate, timely, relevant, and objective information for public and policy use. It also intends this report to inform legislative and executive branch decision makers, data users, and others about the characteristics of statistical agencies that enable them to serve the public good.

This public webinar will discuss the recently released seventh edition of Principles and Practices for a Federal Statistical Agency.
